Maybe.

Tennesee Trip, Steph's Wedding 276Greetings dear readers! I hope this finds you all well and rejoicing in the love of our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ! I’m very well—enjoying a nice week with Momma and my family.

Today I had a very interesting conversation with a fellow co-worker on missions, the danger of a mission field and the reality of  we are safest in God’s will. And somehow I began to think, “Maybe life isn’t  what I perceive it to be?”

Maybe life isn’t about living the dream—my dream or the American. Maybe it isn’t about having fine clothes,  comfortable houses and nice dishes. Maybe life isn’t about movies, entertainment and games. Maybe it isn’t being the most popular, well respected, honored and most sought after. Maybe life isn’t about living comfortably with fancy cars, a revered education and  a nice, plump nest egg. Maybe it has nothing to do with money at all. Maybe life has nothing to do with safety. Maybe life is not anything that has to do with self but rather with God. Maybe life is about obedience—for better or worse, for richer or for poorer, in health or sickness  for as long as I live. Maybe life is about becoming the perfect Bride of Christ—holy and without blemish (Ephesians 5:27), chaste (1 Corinthians 11:2), without blame (Ephesians 1:4).

“ In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:” Colossians 1:22
Yes, dear friends, maybe this alone is true life. I have been living in a dream. An illusion created by self; I’m so thankful Christ came to give us so much more mediocrity. And so, if living God’s dream means giving up wealth, reputation, comfort, and normalcy I’ll take it. For then, and only then, will I be filled with joy and the knowledge that I am doing well.
Please know that having the above is not wrong or sinful—God is the giver of all perfect gifts! However, to believe that the gaining and maintaining  of the above is the mission of life, well, that is wrong.
May the Lord bless you all today as you seek Him! Thank you so much for stopping by! You all are a dear blessing to me!
With love,
Frannie

One thought on “Maybe.

  1. What a beautiful post, Frannie! And so very true and inspiring.. I have long given up the idea of having a "normal" life. In our Heavenly Father's will, no life will be "normal".

    Thanks for sharing what our Abba has revealed to you!

    Many Blessings and Much, Much Love,
    Sonja
