Last week I left work early and would go for a run and sit in the sun and have my conversations with God. What did I come away with? I'm not sure myself except that I am at peace (most of the time, I'm human after all). I was reminded that I need to refocus on my mission, making disciples for Christ. If in all the twists and turns that life brings I can focus on what He has asked me to do, make disciples, then nothing will shake me. When people come and go in my life, which they will, if I am always looking to Him and working on what he has called me to do then I will always be okay.
I wonder that if before this last turn in life I had been focused on the small, in comparison to the mission, insignificant things. Not that the people or the conversations were bad or wrong, they were just becoming too big in my head. This turn in life was so I could refocus and maybe learn all of this?
Sometimes with this journey of life I confuse myself. I'm good at talking circles. I'm good at making hope grow when I wasn't really given any. That's where remembering my job that I was called to helps. When there is so much I don't know or so much that I want, I have found it best to focus on what I do know. That I am loved by God, made by God and the last thing He asked for me to do before He left this earth was to go and make disciples of all people. So, working with what I do know I'm staying busy. I'm connecting with God in my serious prayer time.
I'm also praying that my next turn in life will be another of the waaaaay crazy fun ones.
