In my muse time this a.m., it occured to me to say a little something about “right motives“. PAPA looks at the motivations of our hearts before anything else! And it’s our “motivations” that He tackles first in our lives - starting with what needs the most transformation.

When we say “yes” to the gift given us at the Cross, that is just the beginning of a long - sometimes arduous - journey in what we call the “salvation process“. It’s true that at that moment, we have secured our eternal future.

But unless that moment coincides with entry into the eternal future, we have a lot of life in which to transform and be transformed. Too many folks sit down on their “laurel” and wait. Wait and waste because their focus is not on the “here n’ now“. But that’s subject matter for another day!

A great part of the empowerment process for women of the Christian faith is the “transformation of our minds“. The ‘seat’ of our emotions, life perspective, will and various other asundry things we can’t see, taste, touch, feel or hear. DAD will take those things - one by one - and change them to conform to His viewpoint.

More importantly, to His motivations!

As the transformation process evolves, we will begin to experience a shift in how we think, how we perceive life and its circumstances. We will view almost all of life - and people sometimes - totally different than before we stepped onto the path called “transformation“.

So as you continue your journey in DAD, don’t be surprised to discover that He points out our “wrong motives” (ouch that hurts!). Most often, we must know what’s wrong before we can know what’s right!

If you have any doubts about whether your life motivations are lining up with His. . . ask! I can guarantee He’ll let you know.

It’s essential to our SUCCESS in reaching what we ultimately want, that our motives for doing what we do - in the way we do it - are in line with His.

And the only way we‘re going to know that is to study His Word. . .the written and the NOW. And have someone who will unpack that Word, in both aspects, and help us understand what ultimately He asks of us.

Then take it to Him in prayer - wait & listen. He will come beside you and whisper it in your inner ear.

So finally. . . SUCCESS depends on a number of things. But for us who believe. . . it rests on knowing the “why” & “how” of what we’ve planned & executed. And it will come about because our “motives” have lined up with His.

Have an awesome day doing what He wants of you - for all the “right reasons!”

Much love,

Linda
