Maybe I should change the name of my blog to Girl on a Mission.
I was speaking with a friend of mine about goals, dreams and aspirations. We were chatting about how we have these desires and dreams in our heart and when they don’t come to fruition in our timing we get down and are quick to change the path or doubt the good in the
However, the fact is, that our lives are not our own. Our mission, though it may take different forms in action, is to glorify God, being salt and light to a world that doesn’t know Him and the LOVE he has for all mankind.
I can be an incredibly focused person (despite my ADD tendencies) and when I set my mind on something I can very easily become to attached and dependent on that project or person and forget the reason that I am living. I have a passionate heart that needs a strong anchor. I live, feel, imagine deep and strong and with such passion…I have never lived life in the middle…I’m pretty sure I’m on a mission all the time. I don’t believe in living life in halves.
What I have learned is that it’s not a bad thing, it’s that I need to refocus every day on my central goal, so that all that is around me, that life I lead on a day to day, remains in perspective and that my actions and thoughts and feelings reflect HIS love.
As I do this, He carries me…I don’t have to worry or fret. I can be calm and reliant on God to move me when needed and the impact on the world will be FAR greater because HIS strength is made perfect in my weaknesses (2 Corinthians 12:9).
And so I take time, to reflect, rest and when all around me may not be going immediately as I see it going, I trust in the Promises of God and the path He has made.
