You may be wondering about these strange looking cars. I was when I first saw them. They are amphibian. People go for rides in them on a lake, just so they can say they did it. It's not my thing but it's different! I am more of the looking type. I like to see what's going on and watch, not always do.
Why do cars have to go in the water anyway? Why can't people be happy with cars on land, and boats in the water? Why do we need to invent more, go farther, learn more? Why isn't it ok , to leave well enough alone? Some people have a quest to makes things better. I guess you could say it is a mission.We wouldn't have some of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century without someone going the extra mile.
Jesus taught us to do that, go the extra mile I mean. He said, If someone needs your coat, give them your hat too. If someone needs food, get them enough for a week. If someone needs a hug, give them two. What do we do when we see a need? Certainly we can't take care of everyones needs. This brings us back to a mission, or calling if you like. God has something for you to do that may look completely different from what He wants me to do.
The important things is, that we do it! I don't want my life to be characterized as the woman who had good intentions. I want Jesus to say of me, Well done, you good and faithful servant. Do you know what God has for you to do? I don't mean the obvious things like caring for your family, or being a good employee. Has he spoken to your heart through His word, or through mentors about your purpose? I know He will because He wants you to know it even more than you do!
Dear Heavenly Father, I ask you humbly to meet my sisters in Christ now, and fill them with the knowledge of what specific mission you have for them. If they haven't heard, give them patience to wait for you to speak to them. Fill them with peace, and to know how much you love them. May they fly above some storms in life if it is at all possible. Make yourself known to them. In Jesus name, Amen.
