I have a framed verse from Scripture on my desk. “My purpose is to give you life in all its fullness.” (John 10:10) I look at it every day and am reminded of its beautiful message–that God has a purpose for my life and it is much fuller than simply getting up each morning and doing the usual . . . dressing, eating, brushing my teeth, and so on.
Now that I am living alone I am challenged to engage with life in a new way, to find opportunities to be useful to others, to spend time alone with God, to do meaningful work, and to stop and smell the roses. It would be easy to withdraw, to feel sorry for myself, to dwell on what was instead of what’s to be. But I’m not that sort.
I’m entering a new season. I’m excited to see what unfolds. I’m trusting God to show me the way.
