[1: 1,945 of 10,000] WOEAIHF? Day 39 of 42

WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 39: Balancing your life

Jesus modeled a purpose-driven life and He taught us how to live it:

  1. Helped us to know and love God (worship)
  2. Taught us to love each other (fellowship)
  3. Gave us the word so we could grow to maturity (discipleship)
  4. Showed us how to serve (ministry)
  5. Sent us out to tell others (mission)

The challenge now is to take all this inspiration that I’ve felt into practice and to balance them all. The truth is growth takes patience, perseverance, and doing the mundane even when I no longer feel the swoosh of sparks and it is then that I have to enjoy the present, remember what matters eternally, and have faith (pray harder) that I am in the right track.

I heard an interview of Sufi mystic, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee and he described God as a beloved and he said if you love someone you would think about the person all the time and see the person in everything… now imagine when you discovered your love to God who loves you back unconditionally. It is that moment that you would not want not to be with God all the time. May I have the flare of sharing God as a beautiful and a privilege mission.
