Questions for the New Year

Are Jesus and I really interested in the same thing?
Can people tell what God is passionate about by looking at my life (by reading my blog)?

Gary Haugen, President of The International Justice Mission, challenged me with the above questions at a recent conference.

Are God and I enjoying our friendship? Are we having conversation together? Do I listen in prayer as well as talk?

Am I living out who God created me to be? Am I wishing I could have her opportunities?

Do I remember my important daily question, “What would it look like to trust You today, God”?

What about my resources, my time and my money, are they invested in a way that pleases God and fulfills me?

“Everything has to change to some of us.
Something has to change for all of us”. Gary Haugen
What has to change for me?

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him”.
James 1:5

Blessings to you all in 2012!

  1. "what would it look like to trust you today, Lord?" Oh me of little faith – oh, us of little faith – always with our eyes on the storm and not on the one who calms the storm. Thank you for this reminder – that it points me to the one I can lean on, the one who picks me up out of the water when I don't believe enough, the one who is worthy of trust, he's proven time and time again to be worthy of trust. Thank you, and God bless you and each and every one of yours Sue.
