Building a home after his own heart

Friday, May 7, 2010


I am so blessed to have a loving husband, a wonderful family, a cute little puppy, a sweet little home, a voice to praise God, the opportunity to work with my husband and spend lots of time outdoors. I wouldn't have it any other way! I could have finished college... I could have gone to a music conservatory... I could have become a music teacher... there were endless possibilities, some seeming obvious. But that wasn't God's path for me. I am so content to be right here, right now, with Jim... this is home.

I have finally accepted the fact that I should not let others dictate whether or not my situation and the choices I've made can actually allow me to be happy. I AM happy. Jesus could have come as a lawyer, he could have come as a doctor... instead he was a lowly carpenter, lived on the streets, even his friends abandoned him when he needed them the most and he found his identity in his Father and focused on the path he was given. We need to be cautious to not measure success through wordly eye glasses, realizing that my path has been set before me by God and you may just be called to something different. We need to encourage each other to focus on the ultimate goal and not get wrapped up in careers, money, earthly possessions... focus on building strong relationships in Christ and helping each other, helping others, praying for each other, praying for others.

Stop judging and start serving.
