I posted this in 2010 but it couldn’t be truer of where my heart is today…
All I want to do is something that matters. Honestly. I want to wake up every day feeling like the things I’m heading toward matter to more than just my wallet. I know I have a job to do and mouths to feed, but if the truth could really be told I’d say that I really just want to know that what I do today will echo somewhere else. It’s just not enough for my heart to maintain the status quo.
I’m deeply crying out for the courage to do something real and radical. I want to see life change. I want to invest in others. I want to be more like Jesus. I want to matter. But I don’t want to matter in a way that makes me important. I want to do something that matters in the lives of others. Something that makes them more significant, more valued, more loved and leaves them feeling embraced by Jesus. And I know I’m not the only one.
Here’s the other scary thing I know. There’s someone else waiting on me to make a difference too and there’s someone waiting on you to find the courage and faith to live life loudly. I’m praying that God never stops pushing my heart towards more of Him and the life He wants me to live. I hope I never stop wanting to matter.
