Good intentions and dreams are amazing but simple exercises in mental dexterity without the “will and to do” also known by another name – determination. Purpose and destiny once discovered are exciting and require the addition of determination to go from realization to manifestation. I find as each day passes and life interrupts my plans…a dedication to God and living a life pleasing to Him gives me more strength than I thought I ever need to know.

Psalm 86:2 (Amplified Bible)

2Preserve my life, for I am godly and dedicated; O my God, save Your servant, for I trust in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, without fear or doubt].

1 Peter 2:9 (Amplified Bible)

9But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
