Jesus and Us

My normal writing day each week is Tuesday.  However, recently I’ve been spending about 12 hours of my Tuesdays babysitting my one year old granddaughter.  It’s a lot of fun, but greatly limits the writing time.  I did get in about an hour of writing during nap time.  Tuesday night, when I got home, I typed into my computer what I’d hand written during the day.  Wednesday morning I had some time before work, so I sat down to look over what I’d written.  It was very rough, but I added to it with the intent of polishing it up on Thursday morning before work.  When I looked at it on Thursday, I realized it said nothing.  So, I asked myself, “What are you trying to say?”  Myself responded, “I don’t know.”

Now it’s Friday morning, and here I sit trying to make some sense out of this mess.  What I think I’m trying to say is that Jesus’ life here on earth was an example of what to expect as a committed Christian.  For Jesus it wasn’t about riches or ownership.  The life he led had a single purpose.  He set about accomplishing the will of God.  I believe that for all who have surrendered their life to him the same is true.  Each of us has a purpose, and that is to fulfill God’s will in the life he’s given us.  Each of us has an important place in God’s eternal plan.

Well there you have it.  That’s what I was trying to say.  You wouldn’t believe what this looked like on Thursday morning.  However, I’ve obviously raised the important question of what is God’s will for me.  Only he can answer that.  Just ask him to show you.  You’re probably already in his plan.  I discovered this week, that though I planned to write on Tuesdays, I’m right in God’s will when babysitting my granddaughter.  The writing will come.
