It's my day off. Wednesdays usually always are. They have become my mid-week pause to regroup and reground myself to what's important in life.
As I sipped on my coffee this morning, I turned on the TV.... something I rarely do in the morning... and took in a few moments of today's present culture.
Within in moments, I turned it off.
"Lord, everyone everywhere is scrambling to be heard," I shared my thoughts with my closest Friend.
Every time I have been tempted outward - the Lord anchors my focus inward... to my family of five... the most precious souls I am blessed to know intimately.
Last week my Friend, my All-in-all, kept bringing to mind one word.... Intention.
When I looked up the definition, being the egghead who I am, I discovered two definitions:
1) a thing intended; an aim or plan
2) the healing process of a wound
If you are like me, you were aware of the first definition, but how about the second definition?
Now, layer both definitions, understanding we serve a multifaceted God who is always at all times multidimensional in HIS INTENT.
When I sat and meditated with Him concerning His intent put to task with our family's intent to bow and merge with His intent, it sparked such a WOW moment deep in my spirit. The outcome can be nothing but transformative.
Over this past weekend, I shared this word, intention, with my family, stating unequivocally THIS was God's heart and focus for each of us over the next twelve weeks. Each one of us embraced the theme... a walk of intention with one another and with HIM.
To walk with intention one with another, brings aim, brings healing, brings intimacy. It is the very heart core of God for all those who claim Jesus as Savior: to not simply talk the talk, but walk the walk.
One thing I know FULL WELL -- no matter the wound, no matter the sin, no matter how great the offense.... God's grace exceeds it ALL.... and IF we courage up to believe while humbling ourselves to see we are no better than our worst offender....He takes us to heights unimaginable.....
Dedicated to living a lifetime of intention in Him...
