Your Mission and Purpose

(Learning how to say no)
Do you know
what you need
so you can
do My will?

Will you inventory
all that owns you
to find what
you don’t need?

As you move
through life.
Learn to give up
what owns you.

(Let Me) Strip away
all your piles of junk
all the things
you no longer need.

Embrace the life
I offer you.
Listen to Me
for your mission and purpose.

Move forward stripped
of all your burdens.
Take up My cross.
Follow Me.
(Nehemiah 8:2-10, Luke 4:14-22, 1st Corinthians 12:12-27
(inspired by Luis C. homily, January 25. 2004)

Do you know your mission?
What owns you?
