questioning my mission

we are studying colossians in sunday school.  paul's letter of encouragement to God’s holy people in colossae that he wrote while in prison. 

paul makes the following statement in chapter 1 
  Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.  I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—

paul's mission
to rejoice, to encourage, to serve

what is my mission statment?
what do other's see in me?
a mother, a friend, a teacher....

do i rejoice in my suffering or do i complain of my circumstances?
how am i serving God in "my plan" ?
is my mission statement a reflection of my own plans or His?

What is your personal mission statement?


i'll post mine when i get finished writing it.

  2. Thank you for the thought-provoking post!

    My mission? To reflect His glory, in my own small way, as He gives me insight and ability.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
