"Have you ever had the feeling that something was missing from your life, but you were unable to identify what it was? In 2009 I was living my dream; I had an adoring husband, a great job, and a lovely home. And yet, I felt empty."
"Oftentimes, we overanalyze our purpose. We imagine starting non-profits, becoming missionaries in Africa, selling all of our possessions to buy an RV and write a blog about our 'Christian travels.' While He may have those plans for you, more often than not, He starts with a simple question, 'Can I use you where you are?'”
Words of affirmation and encouragement fill our souls. Life-giving words spur us on, give vision, and point to the purpose for which we have been created. They give life to faith, courage, and conviction.
My prayer is that this verse will remind you to intentionally serve the Lord. Lead your precious family to the feet of Jesus. Show up with all your flaws and brokenness. Remember His goodness. Speak your faith loudly. Let the love of Christ lead you to serve others. I just know God will bless you as you do.
