This week you will focus on emotional strength. In order to begin that part of the process I want you to consider this question:
“What is your spiritual mission?”
People are always writing mission statements or listing core values but consider thinking different. Begin by asking a deep soulful question about why you are here. Your spirit speaks to you with a synchronicity with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit speaks through people, the Word, worship, and other moments and events throughout your day. You will want to listen for this guidance which is available to you at all times. Take a moment, soon, and listen with your spirit and mind. Ask, “Why am I here?” You might find the answer right in front of you or it will be revealed during the day in some very interesting ways.
When you take the time to listen you will receive valuable messages about your purpose and identity. As you begin to journal today start with words like this:
“The purpose of my spiritual mission is…”
You may not be ready immediately to write this out but write something now and go back and revise it later. It is a process of defining and redefining. After you write your spiritual mission statement there is one more step to work on. Find some pictures, objects, drawings, or even doodles that express in tangible ways what your spiritual mission is. These things will help you reinforce your mission by reminding you throughout your week what it is your spirit longs for every day. It will fulfill you in a visual and spiritual way.
Repeat this affirmation several times to yourself:
“I am exactly who God made me to be.”
Also write down, underline, or highlight this scripture for reflection today:
“God will give you the right words at the right time. For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.” Matthew 10:19b-20
