Your Great Purpose

Start fulfillng your purpose now;
never ever looking back
only wishing it had been done
but realizing you got off track.

Step ahead with a plan
that meets people’s needs;
that matches your values
and does many good deeds.

Have a list of dreams;
things to do and when.
Like an athlete seeing
what it takes to win.

Write out things that inspire
like a quote or Bible verse.
Find a link to a video that stirs
and helps the mind to rehearse.

Map out how to stay on course
with a timeline for tasks content
because deadlines are important
like a clock at a sporting event.

As the fourth quarter approaches,
continue to gain greater focus
so that before time runs out,
you’ve met your great purpose.
