February 5, 2018 life


Good morning, DearHeart.

I’m sitting in my big tan chair in the corner pondering prayer things as they rise from my reading this morning. There’s a tricycle in my living room and a weenie dog curled up next to me. Here’s a rundown on my family these days:

Dales is recovering from back surgery from which he is still having uncommon burning/stabbing pain that we hoped the surgery would eliminate.

Levi and Holly are working through the tedious process of financing for their new home. They will begin building very soon.

Bryan is learning a new job as a measurement tech, and Dani is drawing and painting and loving those stories that her art brings in.

Luke is red-shirting this year in green shirts and getting stronger.

Liv is making her mark on two-year-old milestones her way. In my eyes, and I know her other grandmother would agree … the girl has leadership and communication skills. Her parents don’t call it like that yet.

Mom and Dad are going through their days scouting out the next soul who might need their service, then serving them. Profoundly simple. Profoundly effective.

We are all just trying to do the next right thing.

The more I walk this life of ‘serving where I land’, the more I realize our purpose in life (Jesus) is the very meaning of our existence. And … without knowing this we often suffer … ignorant of our own significance.

You are significant.

We fall prey to the illusion that our lives don’t matter and we have no connection or impact on the world around us. Especially when barriers get thrown around and land awkwardly and others try to inject their insecurities and doubts into God’s mission in us.

God’s Word sheds light – offering many insights into your purpose and my purpose on earth and living our days within meaningful mission – simply taking care of each other … simply doing the next right thing.

“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” Prov 20:5 NIV

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”Eph 2:10 NIV

Wake up.

Press on.
