Well, I’ve been working on this for a while! A new address and a new look to celebrate the fresh perspective that has blown in on the wings of 2011 like the first deep breath of spring. Certainly, I’m still “traveling the road home,” but I’m much more intentional these days about “scouting the divine” along the way. This is the place you’ll find me from now on, and I so hope you’ll continue to journey with me.
I was blessed this past weekend to sit in on the taping of LifeToday with James and Betty Robison. Their guest was Beth Moore, and they were kicking off the topic of “Kingdom Living.” On the heels of news stories regarding Egypt and the implications of the political unrest in that region, the conversation was one of urgency. We were chosen by God, before time began, to be members of this generation. Our unique and individual talents are perfectly suited to fulfill the purpose God for US – YOU AND ME – in this specific time in history.
James said something that really lit a fire under me; perhaps it will, you, too.
Here is the tragedy: The Kingdom of God has been reduced to a future reward, instead of a present reality requiring personal responsibilities.
Y’all, the Kingdom of God is not just the glory awaiting us in heaven. It’s NOW. Christ is living within us NOW, and through the power that we have in HIM, we have personal responsibility in our time allotted on this earth, to leave a “God-print” on this generation.
I’m excited about this year because God’s in the business of new opportunities and fresh perspective for abundant Kingdom Living. He always has been, but it’s my responsibility to keep my eyes trained to see them.
To scout the divine as I travel and leave God-prints in my path.
I am now following your new website. I am looking forward to reading this one.
Love your new look! What a word you’ve brought us; I want to live in the now and be responsible for my God-print. Needed that reminder.
Thanks girl…just sent you some gIRL news. :o)
Hello! Things indeed look fresh and crisp here at your new digs.
And Melinda, you words are very convicting today. Rather than the fear and anxiety that seem to be plaguing Christians today, yours is a message I needed to read. God put me in this generation for a reason. Simple. Profound. Yet, I didn’t grasp it fully until just now. Thank you.
May the Lord bless you as you move and shake and travel in His name!
Hi friend! We just keep needing to be reminded, don’t we? Hugs to you!
All the best with this new site, Melinda — and with your speaking opportunities as well. God’s richest blessings on you as you scout the divine while traveling the road home! (Love that!) 🙂
Well, sweet daughter, your post is a reminder that God didn’t call us “Oldies” to retire but to serve until God calls us home. Thank’s for keeping us off the couch and on our toes !! 🙂
I like your new look! It’s fresh & inviting. Nice job!! Love & Hugs!! Mom
