Are you going through life existing, but not thriving? Are there seasons in your life when it appears that you finally got it all together, but you find yourself back on a street called "The Same Mundane" -- trapped in a maze. You get up in the morning and go to a job that you hate, return home, eat dinner, sit on the couch watch tv., go to bed, get up in the morning and start the same routine all over again? Do you feel like you are governed by a force or a kingdom designed to rob and keep you from living your purpose? By the way, the kingdom or force is called the "Rat Race". Does that sound like your life? If, so, it is called living in the state of conscious incompetence, unaware of your purpose. There was an article in the Washington Post that stated, "Only 13 percent of people worldwide actually like going to work". According to a survey conducted by LinkedIn only 30% of 8,000 professional workers landed their dream jobs. Now, this is really going to blow your mind is an article in Entrepreneurs.com entitled "Is Your Job Making You Sick". This article stated that many people are unhappy or overwhelmed or stressed by their jobs and as a result, it is making them sick. The diagnosis is called Psychoneuroendocrinoimmunolgy, with deals with the physiological manifestation of stress. The prescription for this illness is found in Jeremiah 29:11 which says, For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saidth the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Motivational Gifts: Pathway to Your Divine Purpose will help you realize your purpose in life --- escape the rat race and discover why you were created. It will give you meaning to your life. Steve Jobs said, "In order to do great work you must love what you do".

One month after her wedding day, thirty-three-year-old Cami Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and the life she knew changed forever. Cami was soon in and out of L.A.s emergency rooms with alarming frequency as she battled the neurological condition that left her barely able to walk and put enormous stress on her marriage. Each day brought new negative thoughts: Im going to end up in a wheelchair. Marks probably going to leave me. My life is over. Why did this have to happen to me? Then, as a remedy for her condition, Cami received an uncommon prescription from a friend, an African medicine woman named Mbali Creazzo: Give away 29 gifts in 29 days. By giving, Mbali told her, you are focusing on what you have to offer others, inviting more abundance into your life. The gifts, she said, could be anything, but their giving had to be both authentic and mindful. At least one gift needed to be something she felt was scarce in her life. 29 Gifts is Camis poignant and unforgettable story of embracing the natural process of giving and receiving. Many of her gifts were simplea phone call, spare change, even a Kleenex. Yet the acts of kindness were transformative. By Day 29, not only had her health and happiness turned around, but she had also embarked on creating a worldwide giving movement. Including personal essays from members of the 29 Gifts.org online community whose lives changed for the better after taking the Challenge, 29 Gifts shows just how a simple, daily practice of altruism can dramatically alter your outlook on the world.
The Old Testament is our "kindergarten" for understanding the pattern of the Holy Spirit's gifting and work. That pattern is this: God gives an assignment to a person; then the Holy Spirit is given to equip him or her for the assignment.
