Shining Moments

My thoughts wander back to the children in orphanges

all around the world. 

I remember those days when I spun the globe

saying “anywhere, anywhere I am willing to go.”

The Lord led me to Russia where I adopted not one

but two precious girls.

My life has never been the same.

They are mine, He whispers lovingly.

All the children are Mine.

Something I must never forget.

Shining Moments

 

The words caught my attention in the midst of a busy day.

We had been talking about twitter.

Sorry, but that is really only if your famous

and well…..

Famous?! I have no desire to be famous.

But faithful, yes.

To the One Who loves us came with a purpose.

To live and then die for sinful man

To pay the price for our sin.

To defeat death

and redeem us.

To show us how to live and love.

On every seemingly ordinary day, His Voice calls out,

“I love you.

        Come to Me all you who are weary and heavy laden.

        And I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

Rest, He offers.

Not more work.

Another agenda.

A schedule of more and more busynesses.

No, He offers His life for ours.

Yes, there might be work but it will flow from Him through us

naturally

as the ocean tides comes in and goes out.

As we receive Him

His thoughts,

His purpose,

His Love

we give it out

and live it out

in simple,

everyday ways.

One simple conversation with a neighbor becomes holy ground

as we genuinely share concern and hope.

Playing the piano for one

with the angels singing

becomes laced with more importance and meaning to the Lord

than maybe playing in a huge concert hall.

Famous? No, I have no desire to be famous

actually I pray for those who are famous. Their lives are not easy.

The cost is high.

But faithful, yes that is my heart’s desire, my purpose

One day after another

to faithfully serve Him

my whole being at His service

whatever He says

wherever He sends.

To not hold back

but to give thanks to Him in a world that sometimes doesn’t want to hear

to freely, freely serve.

Be Thou my Wisdom

And Thou my true Word

I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord

Faithfully serving

Faithfully sharing

my heart faithfully beating for the Lord of my Heart.

Do you long for that too?

If so, please let me know.
