Jan 20, 2018 | The Moments
I keep asking myself if this is all I’m going to do with my life. Keep wondering if I was created for more than trying to jeep up with life, go to school, do the regular female chores, sing in the bathroom (oh, that fun BTW), live a vicious cycle?
Lately been torn in between tempting life decisions, damn… You know now I can see reasons with great entrepreneurs who talk about dropping out of school to pursue passion, invent something or establish an idea. It seems as though no one sees what you’re seeing, everyone cares about you but then only you know what’s in it for you! At this point, I call on the El Sali, the Lord God my strength, for strength in my inner man to succeed, to move on, to lead me into the truth and to guide me all the way through….

“Life is a cobweb that tries to trap us in monotony if we let it. But we don’t have to. You see, Jesus was radical, transformational, revolutionary, unexplainable, miraculous, wondrous, adventurous and groundbreaking even in the most normal of times.
A simple walk on the street could end up as a walk producing healing.
A few lines in the sand could recreate a woman’s whole image.
A drink of water could turn a woman away from all her soul-ravaging old habits.
Jesus is not boring. Neither is His plan for you.
It is thrilling, because:
– You are alive with Christ (the one who holds all power and authority).
– You are a “new creation. The old is gone, the new is here.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
– You are empowered to live like Jesus. (see 1 John 2:6).
– You are “the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14)
– You can walk momentarily “in step with the Spirit.” (Galatians 5:25)
– You lose your life for Christ, and then find it.
This is adventure, thrill, and calling.
Friends, the world isn’t acting on us. But with Christ in us, we act with love pouring out on it. This mindset changes every detail of a day. There is no mountain of laundry that doesn’t have monumental importance when done in union with Christ. There, he may give you the wisdom you’ve been searching for or the peace you’ve been asking to experience. He may give the desire to finally reach out to that one person you’ve been meaning to talk to.
What’s before you? The magnificent or the mundane? Why not see Christ, right there with you, wanting to make an impact through you?
His touch can make what you’ve discounted as “insignificant” highly magnificent.
God, give me your perspective, let me see the world through you. Give me a heart to love, to praise you, to thirst for you, to know you more, to serve you, to experience you in the little moments, to work as a form of worship to you.
In Jesus’ Name,
Now It’s Your Turn
Think of a duty, a job, or an act of service you are prone to hate. Invite God in and ask Him how you can do it together. It may start with prayer, praise or simply pondering His faithfulness.”
I’m in this too, so I’m working on me!
