as the sun peaked through the trees and the birds began their songs , I was reminded of a truth that I wanted to document here for my future self.
Our lives are but a stroke in this elaborate painting, that alone may seem insignificant or minuscule - but the bigger picture would be incomplete without it.
so while the earth most definitely does not revolve around our life specifically, the details matter. What you do while you’re here matters. How you treat others matter. What you’re investing time into matters.
no one is created with a lack of purpose, so as we live out each day I believe it’s our responsibility to seek Gods wisdom and do what we can to fulfill that purpose.
It’s easy to forget this will all end eventually, so we get caught up in our own daydreams and desires, and waste precious time curating the lives we think we deserve when our eternal home gets set on the back burner and is only acknowledged when and if our “dreams” aren’t going according to plan. Gods purpose is so much bigger than our ideas, yet He asks for such little participation in return.
I myself am ashamed of what I’ve set as a priority over glory and the simple act of being a light in such a dark world. but reminded today as the sun meets the sky and the clock starts over, that even when I take steps backward, He’s always there with His hand reached out and guides my steps forward yet again. maybe you’re there today too... maybe things have gotten pretty dang foggy and you’ve lost perspective or even just hope In moving forward, but understand that God is always marking the path ahead of you, just waiting for you to reach out and walk forward with Him once more 818.19
