I am stricken by how full…and how I empty….I feel today.
Full: Living into my calling. Loving my friends. Equipping youth workers. Worshipping fully.
Empty: Exhausted from the conference and this stage in my life. Afraid of the ‘what could be’ in my future. Knowing my calling but having no way to express it right now.
As I lamented these things, meditated on the functional and dysfunctional parts of me, and called out to my Creator – I caught myself praying for a job. “God, I need a job. I need a ministry. I need some students.”
And then the wonder of that still small voice….”You don’t need a job, Darren – you need Jesus.” That is all.
On days where your mind and heart are filled with ‘needs’, – don’t forget the greatest need of us all…..
