Your works or His?

I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and that is part of why I haven’t written in a while. While reading “Undomesticating God” by Jennifer O’Sullivan (www.HolyJustLove.com) I finally had a moment of clarity…. several actually. It’s the age old question of what’s my purpose?
