I have been thinking about this a lot from the perspective of our community of faith at Higher Calling. If I am not careful, it is far too easy for me to become apathetic.....maybe you are the same. In these times it is important to me to know WHY I do what I do, it gives me motivation, passion, and purpose to know the WHY of my life.
I have decided I do the things I do because I genuinely love God. I am confused by Him, I rarely understand the path He chooses for me and for others, but I trust Him and love Him. The only reason I can continue doing what I am doing is because of His power working in me, and I will always be grateful for the many blessings He has given me. I do what I do because of what He has already done for me.
I also sincerely love people. Not just love people, either, I actually like them (I just lost some of you!). I like meeting people and getting to know them. I like being a part of people's stories, and I like being with people as their journeys are shaped. I like sharing with the highs and the lows
More than anything, I like introducing people to God. I'll tell you what's the most incredible thing of all: when I meet people again after they have met God. It's like meeting a completely new person. I love that.
And its why I do what I do.
