a "little" project I'm working on

My Foundation Statement upon which I will base all other decisions.... I could use some feedback.

"I am a child of God. "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believe in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17) God loves me so much that he gave up his divine rightm then gave up his human "rights", in essence he gave up everything so that I might know him and be with him forever, beyond life as I know it now. God has called me to a purpose beyond those of my own design or desire. He has called me into a faith of actions, not just words and good intentions. I commit myself to daily remembering God's loev for me, daily seeking fellowship with him, daily repenting of sin in my life, daily feeding up the spiritual bread of life, God's word, and daily praying and seeking opportunity to serve as God's hand and feet - his physcal preseance - to someone here on this earth, espcially those who do not know him. God help me to do this."

That's beautiful. We have been working on our family mission statement for several weeks now.

I think it will help us make good decision as a family & love each other better.

i think that is good.
hits the main points
-you are a sinner
-you are saved from sin by Jesus
-you are given a new heart to do the work of God
-you will seek his will daily to understand, and you will surrender daily to live how he wants you to live
you can definitely build upon that

Very good start! I'm so proud of you. Your mission will obviously change a little as you mature. Always remember that if you are doing what God wants you to do you will have peace in this life. Simply put(borrowed from the in depth mission statement of The Virginia Hospital Center whose mission is: To Be the Best Hospital):
Be the bestest child of God you can be, the bestest wife you can be, the bestest mommy you can be and the bestest friend you can be! I love you just as you are but know that I will continue to love you and, if possible, love you even more as you grow in grace:)

Hello, i think that is good, hopeful. My english is bad, sorry about that, i hope you understand what i try to say.

My one of the hundreds favoriteparts (can i say so?) in bible is Eph.2:8-10, its so safe to know that God has planned all our works and we shall just walk in them :)
