A Word of  Encouragement from our
Director of Missions

  Well, I’m doing it again! I am undertaking my fifth (I think) “40 DAYS OF PURPOSE” using Rick Warren’s updated book, “What On Earth Am I Here For?” On day three of his book, Rick addresses the question, “What Drives Your Life?” He says, “Everyone’s life is driven by something.”  He identifies about five values or emotions that drive us. How true they are!

(1) GUILT— Many people are driven by guilt. They allow their past to control their future. We are products of the past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.

(2) RESENTMENT or ANGER — Some people hold on to hurts and never get over them. Instead of releasing their pain through forgiveness, they rehearse it over and over in their minds. They who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment.

(3) FEAR — Fear driven people often miss great opportunities because they’re afraid to venture out. They may be afraid of perceived failure.

(4) MATERIALISM — Self worth and net worth are not the same. Your value is not determined by your valuables, and God says the most valuable things in life are not things at all.

(5) NEED FOR APPROVAL — Many people are constantly trying to live up to everyone else’s expectation of them. Some are driven by peer pressure always worried by what other’s might think. Unfortunately those who follow the crowd usually get lost in it.

  It’s a good question for each of us to answer for ourselves. What is it that really dives my life? What motivates me to live, love, work and serve? Am I truly driven by God’s purposes and design for my life? Or, am I driven by my own self-identified goals or desires? I’m asking myself again… maybe you should too!

Encouragingly Yours, Russell R. Cook
