Purpose, not duty

"I had been driving myself because I thought the success of all my endeavors depended on me when, in fact, I should have trusted in God and relied more on His strength and His will and His timing." Nick Vujicic in Unstoppable.

I've been feeling that way about volunteer work. It made me smile to read when he said that he kept going with his motivational speaking engagements as though it was a duty rather than a purpose. I feel like that too.

Maybe it's the reminder that God, and the people around me, love ME just for me, rather than for what I do, makes all the difference.
