I’m not exactly sure what it is but it’s probably going to involve someone else. The only way to know for sure is to ask Him. Draw close today and throughout look for the opportunity He’s prepared. Don’t be afraid you’re the perfect one for this; trust. When you see who it is, care for them as only you can. There’s nothing more exhilarating than sharing His love.

Asking broad sweeping questions like, “Why is there evil in the world?” or “Why do bad things happen to good people?” is like trying to paint God with one color. Each of us is completely unique and God wants our relationship with Him to be the same. So rather than standing at a distance and throwing these questions out to the wind, we should draw close to Him and whisper, “What can I learn from this Dear Lord and how can we together survive and thrive?”.

God doesn’t put more or less value on the quality of the things we try to do for Him. God’s definition of success is not the same as ours. Jesus is our example; draw close, listen well, then do. That will be successful.

turn to God, draw in close, listen and whatever He says, do that? That’s what Jesus always did. There is peace and rest in this approach. We don’t have to meet the expectations others have for us. Their yoke is not easy, God’s is.
