{Feel} our Purpose

I look forward to my daily devotional. 
It arrives every weekday morning in my email inbox. 
I enjoy reading it while I have coffee, usually while the kids are eating breakfast. 
Sometimes the house is quiet and I get to ponder the message while the kids are stuffing their faces with breakfast.  Sometimes I have to check back and read it later. 
This one was from Wednesday. 
It real hit home and I decided to share it! 

Seek and be confident in who and what God has called you to be and do. Don't try to overcompensate by doing things that aren't part of what you're here for. That will just slow down progress and frustrate you and the people around you. You do your part, and let everyone else do theirs...
Romans 12:4-6a


Seek and be confident in who and what God has called you to be and do. Don't try to overcompensate by doing things that aren't part of what you're here for. That will just slow down progress and frustrate you and the people around you. You do your part, and let everyone else do theirs.
 
Sometimes I think we {as normal human beings} get so caught up in life we forget about ourselves and our place. 

This verse and the comments that follow remind me of my word for the year...FEEL!  I did a whole blog post about my word.  It is almost June and I needed the gentle reminder to keep it all in perspective!

I am trying to do my part as one of God's children.  I want to do my part to the best of my ability.  I try to give 100% in all I do.  My dad always said I did my best if I gave 100%.  As a mom I am doing the best job I can.  I can't compare myself to other moms.  I am just 'feeling' my way through!

Do you get a daily devotional? 
Do you recommend one I may not know about?
My current read is dailyverse.com.

I don't get one, but this sounds like a great idea. My word is FOCUS and needed to keep my focus where it belongs...on Him and not what others are doing. Good reminder.
