So, What’s Your Purpose?

So, What’s Your Purpose?  What Makes Your Heart Sing #3 



The popular restaurant was noisy. Seems like it always is—whether lunch or dinner. Yet our conversation quickly turned serious when I asked, ‘So, what’s your purpose?’ As people often do, when stalling for time, he asked, ‘What?’ I lowered my head, adjusted my expression and said, ‘Yes, you heard my question … why do you think you are here? What is your purpose?’ He rubbed his chin, rubbing his jawbone…

His Calling, Your Calling?

His Calling, Your Calling?  Matthew 9.9-13 



I remember how my mother used to relate stories from her youth, waxing nostalgic as she did so—often with a far-away look in her eyes, as she talked about St. Jo, Mizzur-uh (Missouri), about growing up with ten children, and a mama who always had a song on her tongue, usually an old hymn.

Distractions … from Spiritual Growth

Distractions … from Spiritual Growth

Today I was with my corporate guys, who were willing to ‘stop the presses,’ in spite of all the work going on around them—emails, phonecalls and voicemails, pressing matters which vied for their attention--to carve out time to come together, look at God’s Word, and have their embers stoked into flames.…

A Time to Grow

A Time to Grow.

To everything there is a season, 



a time for every purpose under heaven: 



a time to be born, 



and a time to die; 



a time to plant, 



and a time to pluck what is planted; 



a time to kill, 



and a time to heal; 



a time to break down, 



and a time to build up; 



a time to weep, 



and a time to…
