Living life with passion is a vital part of living a life that matters.
Tammy Brandell-Carter

On Sunday our church honored the high school seniors who are part of the youth group.
My daughter is part of that group and I thought about what I could share with her that has would serve her well in this next season of her life.

Humility
Living life with humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.
Philippians 2:3

Purpose
Our purpose is to do our part in His kingdom come, that His will be done.
Matthew 6:10

Ownership
Our life does not belong to us.
We made an exchange when we traded disgrace for grace, punishment for forgiveness.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Life
We cannot continue to live a dead life when we have the option of new life
2 Corinthians 5:17

Shine
He has called us to let our light shine in a world of darkness.
Matthew 5:14

Will
His will for us is revealed as we live it.
Psalm 23:6

So my precious daughter this is what I would say to you.
When you live your life with passion, unafraid to accept a new challenge, when you live your life with others in mind willing to reach out, when you live your life with God directed purpose, when you are quick to forgive, quick to give the grace you have received, when you embrace freedom to be who you were meant to be, your light will shine
and His peace, His love, His favor, will guide you in all you do.
