"My brothers and sisters, if people say they have faith, but do nothing, their faith is worth nothing. Can faith like that save them?" James 2:14 NCV
At any one moment, I have several projects in the works whether it be a new adult novel, a new children's book with illustrations, a new painting, a ghostwriting project, a volunteer project for my sons' school, or regular household chores to keep everything running smoothly. Often times it can feel like I'm attempting the magic trick where you keep several plates spinning on top of small wooden rods. Go here, go there, don't let this one fall.
Then suddenly, God drops something so heavy that the plates all seem to fall at once to the ground. Not a single one shattering but each one landing perfectly waiting to be picked up at a another time while I sit in awe at this heavy truth before me.
"...their faith is worth nothing." Today I have been working on a 15- Day devotional that I plan to release this summer. I was reading this scripture and it just hit me so powerfully that I had to pause and take a moment. God, is amazing! He is awesome! Does my faith reflect that? Do my actions reflect the faith that I speak?
God, I don't want people to look at my faith, at my life and say, "That's nothing." I want my love for you, my faith in you, to burn so passionately that people can no longer see me but you. Take me to the place where my greatest effort could not accomplish all that begins to happen. Where heaven kisses earth and somehow I'm caught in the middle. Amen.
A New Identity
What is this blog about? You mean, I'm supposed to have a purpose? Ok, if that's required then my purpose is life.
