Every encounter Jesus had, he had it with purpose.
This has struck me as something I think most of us wish we did more often.
In a random series of events one day last week, I had lunch with the President/CEO of Fine Airport Parking. He began to tell his story. A midst the chatter at the table, I hung on every word. If you want to be great, you learn from the great.
I didn't have much time but I knew I wanted to ask one question. I had purpose, a goal in the brief time I had.
I've been fortunate enough to spend some time with my father in law in the past week. I listen to him talk to his son, his grandkids and wife. He is the one person that will talk theology with me. I'm gonna miss that. The time spent with him is a treasure. A true treasure. I don't know how to emphasize that enough.
There is purpose. There is intent. There is 'the knowing' that this meeting could be the last.
The stuff with my FIL has been life altering, heart changing and focus shifting. I'm grateful to those that have walked the path before us & brought us comfort.
I'm not sure any of this makes sense. The journey thus far has been so mind blowing that it can be hard to absorb, and even for ME to put into words, but I am trying to be mindful of His nearness,
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." -Psalm 34:18
Live with Purpose.
