Laid before me is a tattered, battered, worn out piece of paper.
On the piece of paper lies a very precious truth from God's word, that He with clarity, spoke into me in the year 2000 during an intense "quiet" time.
The verse, which is highly personal and which I have not contributed, is followed by some reflective thoughts and a mission statement created and composed around the verse, and my perceptions of what God was speaking to me in those moments.
In the most extraordinary way I see how the hand of God has worked, and is working, to perform that good word which He promised way back in 2000, and I stand amazed, humbled, and in praise of His ability to use the "whole" of our lives to bring about a true conformity of spirit and a "usability" factor for which He assumes full responsibility and receives glory from.
And what I call mission impossible;
God gloriously declares mission possible.
Personal mission statements are extremely important and effective in living out purpose-filled lives. We become settled, situated, and stabilized when we align ourselves with something beyond the "here and now" and concretely link ourselves with the objective of closeness to and intimacy with God.
Not one good word that God has promised me has failed me.
"Blessed be the Lord that hath given rest unto His people Israel according to all that He promised; there hath not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised by the hand of Moses His servant."
1 Kings 8:56
Every word that He's given has enforced my belief of Him, worked to enhance my trust in Him, and intensified my desire to have more of Him.
I encourage you to create a mission statement that speaks to a life beyond the "here and now."
Review it continually and you will likely live it more effectively.
A few of my own recordings are enlisted for you with the desire to encourage you to sit down with God and formulate a personal mission statement of your own.
Begin by asking Him to give you a key "life" verse and work from there.
God's blessing on your journey.
Keep moving with Jesus.
-I purpose to invest significant time daily in God's word and the study of it.
-I purpose to admit failures, faults, and sins honestly, squarely, and openly where it may assist another person's walk with Christ.

-I purpose to use the gifts God has given me to advance the Gospel of Christ through various creative forms.
-I purpose to equip others for service to my best ability and encourage others in their walk with Christ.
-I purpose to take full responsibility for my sin with an anticipation of a glorious outcome through confession.
I purpose to advance in my faith no matter how steep the climb or how changing the terrain. I recognize that change and hardship induce growth and faith and are useful agents in conforming the soul to Christ.
Commit your life and this season of your life to the One who created you.
Be encouraged and remember ...
All missions are possible.
"God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man that He should repent. Hath He said and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken and shall He not make it good?"
Numbers 23:19
"But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, 'With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.'"
Matthew 19:26
