Tuesday afternoon, I was sent on an errand to deposit a check for the law firm I work at. On my way there, about a 6 block walk, I took advantage and started talking to my Father about all the craziness, busyness, and frustration I had been feeling. I’m sure everyone can relate—striving to do everything but it never being ENOUGH. I was just walking and really pouring out my heart to God and just asking tough questions. But instead the conversation took a whole different direction. It began with questions like “why?” “But why me?” “why not them?” and then it turned into “ thank you Lord for selecting me, for choosing me.”
Why not me? Why not YOU?
I started to really thank Him because I know that if I were not living this out for Him, I would really go insane. If I genuinely did not have this mission within my heart, I would be cold, depressed, and bored. We have to be conscious and aware that we are not just in the positions and places we are now by coincidence, but that we have been SENT.
Take ownership of YOUR world and live out the Gospel. There’s a completely different meaning to your role in life when you realize that this isn’t for you.
John 15:16-19 (English Standard Version)
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide
