This World Needs . . .

I woke up thinking about what needs to be done.

I broke the habit years ago.

There was a time . . .

when my kids were young,

when each day seemed BIG,

when I gave all my energy to navigate through the demands of 24 hours,

when I determined to make their world better,

when  imperfection remained despite my effort,

. . .   I learned:

What I do will never be as important as who I am.

I realized the to-do list is secondary to the daily process of

being an intentional and mindful human-being joined to the heart of God.

And, now . . .

when the world is messier than ever,

when so many things are wrong,

when young and old are worried,

when there does not seem to be solid ground,

. . . I’ve realized it’s still true today.

The book of Micah describes who God asks us to be:

No. He has told you, mortals, what is good in His sight.
    What else does the Eternal ask of you:

BUT

to live justly

and

to love kindness

and to walk with your True God in all humility (Micah 6:8, Voice). 

These words are not a to-do list but a key to learn how to be in this world.

At the end of my life, I hope someone will say:

She lived justly, loved kindness, and walked with God in all humility.

The thing is . . . I believe this world needs you and I to be that kind of person . . . more than ever –Kerrie
