Made for This Devotional by Nonda Houston

21 Days of Embracing Your Purpose

More than ever my prayer is for women to be done with shallow living and launch out
into the deep. I pray we develop an unshakable faith, founded on the Word and our relentless
pursuit of His Presence. May we not just learn about God, but personally, intimately and
experientially know Him.
From personal crisis to pandemic to your best day ever, wherever you find yourself right
now, may your heart be sealed by the Holy Spirit knowing that you were made for THIS.

”We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for works that He has prepared before us that
we might walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 NKJV
