"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be all glory!!"  Ephesians 3:20-21

I just love this verse! Over the years I have learned that the purpose of my life is to bring glory to God. I have wasted much time trying to figure out how to fullfill that purpose on my own. I think that is why this verse resonates with me so well.  First, there is a promise: MORE! 'Immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine' is really too much for my feeble mind to comprehend! Second, there is assurance: HIS POWER! I don't have to be a super hero to accomplish anything. He's has all I'll ever need! Third, empowerment: WITHIN US! Even though God has all the strength, power, endurance and anything else needed for accomplishing anything at all; He is still so good that He  chooses to utilize those attributes through me! And finally, our response: WORSHIP! How can I help but raise my voice and my hands in worship to a God who gives so much?

I hope to leave a legacy, a tribute, to God's glory reflected in my life and the lives of others. Whether I am preparing tomatoes for the dinner salad, publishing a book, or giving a word of encouragement to one or 100 people, I believe that if I do it with determination to reveal God, then I am fulfilling my purpose.

I sincerely hope your life will be blessed by mine!
