Do you ever look around, look back, and evaluate where you are in life? We’re often too caught up in busy-ness to see our surroundings.
Still your heart today and take some time to consider these simple questions. Discuss them with a friend, journal, or pray your responses to God.
- Who am I today? Who am I living for? Am I living for myself, my family, society, or God? Take the time to know yourself without any pretense. “You have searched me, Lord, and you know me” (Ps. 139:1).
- Where do I want to be five years from now? What legacy do I wish to leave—what person do I want to become? When I look back in five years, what do I want to say? “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance” (Prov. 21:5).
- What am I going to do about it? You are not powerless. You have a role to play in the grand story that God is writing for the world! How will you step into that role today? “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10).
Doug Lucas, president of Team Expansion, reminds us that every step begins with prayer. “Theharvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (Matt. 9:37–38). Join us in prayer.
