I am in the midst of a terrific read, Die Empty by Todd Henry. I am absolutely loving this book, but it forces you to take a look at your aimless tendencies and to find and close the loopholes through which you allow your true purpose to slip through.
I want to be like this much smaller Redwing Blackbird who was just tearing the heck out of the Blue Heron for being in his territory. In the animal kingdom you kind of don’t have a 911 or a way to file a grievance when someone tries to move into your space.
What are you aspiring towards on behave of others?
What will you stand for today?
What will you refuse to compromise on, no matter what?
What will determine your terms of engagement?
What do you know you should be doing, but have been ignoring?
These seemingly simple questions just have me frozen. I’m having a hard time facing up to truthfully answering them. They make me feel weak and a bit like a wimp.
So, what are you standing for today? Share some answers with me, it might help to empower me and find my purpose…. en theos ††† jim
