I think I’ve, at last, discovered the reason why I exist at all. It’s SO clear now…..and God has been trying for years to get through. I’m being called as a messenger, a warrior for Christ; as I suspect, all people are. I think He wants us all to pull together, to unite, in His Name to save this world from certain death. His word [call] is an open invitation to anyone who hears it. Will you answer it? Well, I decided to do just that.

Since yesterday this is coming through stronger than ever. A friend told me to stop being so scared and just DO it. God WILL protect me. I just have to trust Him. It felt like a weight lifted from my soul; my mind and heart finally opened and accepted this challenge. I’ve been a Christian my whole life, but this was like a renewal of my spirit….of my own, personal oath to God to serve Him always.

Yet I’m still afraid, so I keep repeating st Patrick’s breastplate:

Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.

I know it sounds very dramatic, but believe me…..this has been such an uplifting experience and, for the first time in years I feel I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be in my life. You see…I’ve been doing so many things….and I’ve been doing it well, but I still felt empty inside. I’m a counselor, a charity worker, a baker, a shoemaker, a candlestick maker…not good at any of the latter two, though, only shoes I can make is knitted baby bootees and I almost burned the house down trying to make candles. (Just brightening the mood here, friends, okay?) Point is, I have done and still do many things, but I’ve never found my purpose.

Until yesterday, when a friend, colleague and old study-buddy pointed out that I’ve had the PURPOSE in front of my nose forever….I just tried to, constantly, make excuses for NOT getting busy fulfilling it. Proverbs 21:16 tells us: ‘A man who wanders from the way of understanding will rest in the assembly of the dead’. I finally got the message.

I’m going on a journey, I think…….

God bless all.

A word of inspiration for Tuesday:

Exodus 12:23b

‘….He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.’

– The Lord is your protector.
– There is a destroyer and a devourer.
– But the Lord is far greater and He will intervene.
– He is the one who rebukes the devourer and stops the destroyer.

PRAYER:

Lord, You are my protector and my deliverer. When the storms come, I know that I can look to You with confidence and hope. Amen.

God bless all on this day.

We’ve been away for a bit, hiding from social media and technology. This then, serves as my inspiration for the final stretch toward 2016.

In all our human (humane) efforts to bring hope, joy and fulfilment to thousands of people across the globe, we need, perhaps, to remember….WE ARE MERE INSTRUMENTS in the hands of the One who set us on our paths. Yes, we are compelled to do the work….to listen to the voice speaking in our hearts, demanding that we never give up our calling to serve, to help, to uplift….but their is Someone who will see it through, who will ensure the success of every small act of kindness.

We, as instruments, should therefore hold on to this scripture….no good deed ever goes to waste, no small act of decency and kindness goes unnoticed….what we, the instruments, are doing is IMPORTANT. You may not…
