The third stage of our sabbatical is where we spend time seeking what the Lord wants us to do next. It’s not here yet, but it certainly has been weighing on my mind. Jim already has his next assignment, but I’m pretty clueless.
Don’t get me wrong – there are a ton of things I could do, and many I’ve already been asked to consider, but what the Lord wants me doing I really can’t say yet.
But as I continued reading through Ken Gire’s book The Reflective Life I realized I already know the most important part of my next job description!!! It’s loving the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength!
No matter what my next job ends up being it is so vital this remains the main thing!!!
Ken writes, “What difference would it make if all the meetings and activities that make up the curriculum of our lives were driven by that one grand mission to passionately love God and allow that brimming love to slosh from our lives and drench everyone around us?”
1 Corinthians 13 makes the answer clear ~ all the difference in the world!
