I read a blog post today by a guy who is funny, talented and a solid follower of Jesus. I met him this summer when we were both asked to spend the week with about a thousand amazing high school students. Yes, good times and lots of fun.
His life has changed in the past year. So has mine? Has yours ? Yes, I figured it may have.
His blog post reminded me that even when life changes, throws us a curve, steps on our toes and makes us hurt..... our life's call, passion... what God created us to do in our short time here, does not change.
Thanks Ben...you can check him out at http://benjaminwoods.me/2011/10/10/be-present-part-1-living-a-great-story/
1 Corinthians 7:17
Each of you should continue to live in whatever situation the Lord has placed you, and remain as you were when God first called you. This is my rule for all the churches.
God is clear to us, to stay the course, keep our eyes fixed on the goal, and He will cover the rest.
We will all have days where we struggle, wither from external happenings or internal battles, fighting our human desires, wishing we could die to them and yet, recognizing His strength in those moments. He is there... always.
Wherever you are today... know that God has placed you there and promises to use you for His glory. Stay faithful, not matter the cost.
Today... You are here.. Be here.
