This one’s going to be a bit random. In my head it makes sense. But that can be a bit of a crazy place sometimes. Here’s what I got.
– I’m still thinking about this from my class last week. A wise teacher told me that,”leaders are designed for conflict”. Created to be stretched, challenged, bruised, disliked. In other words…it ain’t going to be pretty. Or easy. And it might be a bit lonely.
– I’m thankful for the people in my life that seem to know exactly the right thing to say and exactly the right time that I need to hear it. “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart. I will be found by you and I will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you and I will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” I desire to seek, in a way that seems a bit paradoxical; I desire to desire. And I feel a bit stuck.
We are all the walking wounded. I’m becoming more aware of that everyday. Many of the wounds are invisible, kept hidden from others with the facade of a smile. Thank God for those who see the wounds.
