Faith & Fitness Day 3: What Drives You? + Stretching Exercises

Everyone's life is driven by something.  Oftentimes, we don't realize our drivers because "they're" constantly driving us!  Either driving us "crazy" (lol) or "driving us toward goal achievement" (oh yeah!).  In this section of the Purpose Driven Life book, Rick Warren shares five of the common life drivers as well as five of the common benefits to purpose-driven living.  See the below list:

5 Most Common Life Drivers:
1.  Guilt
2.  Resentment and anger
3.  Fear
4.  Materialism
5.  Need for Approval

5 Benefits of Purpose-Driven Life:
1.  Meaning
2.  Simplification
3.  Focus
4.  Motivation
5. Preparation for eternity

One key lesson:
The above common life drivers as well as many others  (not listed) lead to a dead end (unused potential, unnecessary stress, and unfulfilled life).  "We are products of our past, but we don't have to be prisoners of it.", p28  "Without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction, and events without reason." p.30  Nothing matters more than knowing God's purpose for our lives.

Point to Ponder:  Living on Purpose is the path to peace.
Verse to Remember:  "You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you. " Issiah 26:3
Question to Consider:  What would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life?  What do I want  it to be?

Physical Exercises:   Stretching- When doing the exercises, start slowly with small movements.  Take deep breaths in and blow out slowly.   Allow your body to stretch and lengthen as you do the movements.  Song used:  Let It Go by Idina Menzel (from the movie Frozen Soundtrack)
