Came across a “tweet” of a fabulous lady by the name of Luann Prater that has stuck with me, she wrote:
On my way to where I thought I was going, I bumped into my real purpose.
It happened… in the middle of a grocery store, cart full of food… I bumped into my real purpose for that day. It happened in a conversation. It happened because I held my hands out. Hands that previously thought they would push a cart, quickly, and return home. Hands that instead stood, holding a birthday cake box and frosting can, while listening. Hands that offered time, attention, and a physical hug.
As my hands were holding, words came forth, just as I’ve read about before,
I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
He certainly did. Words of His love given, words received. It was breath-taking… and it all started with open hands…
What is your purpose for today? Perhaps you have yet to bump into it…
