The day I get to drink Mt. Dew. Just Kidding. Remember the woman at the well? We’ll focus on the Word each Thursday. Jesus offered living water – that she would never thirst again. I want that water!
“Lord, do you really want me to change the way I care for, minister to, and think about others, especially the least of these?” – Brandon Hatmaker
In Jen Hatmaker’s book Interrupted, her husband shares his take on how God was stirring something inside of them to live life differently. God was seriously interrupting their comfortable Christianity and all they had known and lived for so long.
What if we all ask that same question of God?
What if God starts making it painfully obvious that He really DOES want us to change?
What if we have enough courage to create margins for God to move in and through us?
I want to see God move in my everyday ordinary experiences. I want to know that I know that God is in this. I want more than anything for Him to show up and interrupt my plans whenever they aren’t in His will.
Everyday I’m realizing a little more that it’s not all about me. It is however about living a life that honors God and serves others – just like the example that Jesus lived out loud for us.
Living that kind of life takes courage. It takes boldness. It takes a trust without borders.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:8
Lord, teach me to trust you. I’m ready for whatever you have ahead. I want to walk a different road.
This songs makes me want to take that different road:
Have you ever been through a season where you knew God was leading you to something new? I’d love to hear about your journey.
Proverb of the Day:
Proverbs 13:3 NLT – Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.
