Daily Lift #1151

Soul Is On A Mission

Your soul is on a mission from its Creator. You are unique. Only you are you, now and always. Only you have your unique life mission. Your loving Father and awesomely powerful Creator loves you and wants you to succeed.

The situations and occurrences throughout your life are Divinely orchestrated to elevate you and your character. The questions you ask yourself about life create you and get you to focus on a direction. The Torah verse states (Deuteronomy 10:12) : “And now, what does the Almighty ask from you?” Please note the important word, “Now.”

This is a question that we need to be aware of many times throughout each day. “Right now, what am I being asked to think, say, and do?”

((Life is Now: Creating moments of joy, courage, kindness, and serenity, p. 31) )
