Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

I really like this, especially these lines:

The purpose of life is not to maintain personal comfort; it’s to grow the soul…”The work” does not need to be grand, only fitting. It is guided by asking ourselves over and over: What is the next right thing?

With love,

    Hey Russ, I don’t ask myself over and over, “What’s the next right thing?” But I do ask that question. Before I leave my sanctuary each morning and head down the circular staircase to the “real world,” I ask God, “As I walk in Your Way today, help me meet who You want me to meet, and tell me what You want me to say; help me be who You made me to be, and show me what You want me to do. In Jesus’ name. Amen”. That’s the long-winded way to ask God, “What’s next?” God probably likes your version best! 🤪

  2. I just take things as they happen and roll with the flow

    Going with the flow certainly has its rewards.
