There comes a time in our lives that we are tempted by something that can change our lives in a way we can never imagine. In some circumstances we can have what I’m going to call a flesh attack. In case you don’t know that is when your flesh demands satisfaction. In that state we forget about the consequences or we just don’t care. A free for all is not necessarily free at all. Someone is going to pay be it one or both involved.
Her future had taken a sudden turn
The flesh got in the way
Never again would she be
The carefree teen she was yesterday
A decision that never crossed her mind
Had been made for her
The secret fun she enjoyed
Had gone a bit too far
She wondered as tears
Streamed down her face
How could this happen to me
No more will life be carefree
When she shared the news with him
He turned and walked away
Hadn’t seen or heard from him
Since that dreaded day
The unexpected bundle of joy
Had made his way
The pain and push
Is here to stay
Where is the joy that abounds
Blank face and stony heart
Cold eyes starring into space
No connection to be found
Detached from the start
With great joy we praise The Lord
For all He did on the cross
The passion was God’s alone
Jesus gave up His life
As a sacrifice
Because God’s desire
Was for no one to perish
But have everlasting life
Your life is not your own
It belongs to the one who paid the price
To experience the passion
Like none known before
God’s passion fulfilled by Christ
I am inviting you to my One Woman Art Show of several pictures I created.
The pictures are watercolor, acrylic and charcoal.
This is my first time sharing because I’m a little shy at doing this.
As I get time to create more I will share them.
Let me know what you think if you like to.
For a long time I have been trying to figure out what my purpose is for this time in my life. I haven’t been able to come up with anything. One day I was thinking about my purpose and I realized years ago I knew what my purpose was then but it hasn’t fit in my life for many years.
My purpose then was to minister to my husband and children and the children in the neighborhood.
A part of my purpose was aborted because of divorce. I still fulfilled the part that included my children and other children. Today my children and grandchildren are grown and live in another part of the country.
Where does that leave me as far as a purpose? I don’t know. I haven’t gotten a revelation of another purpose so far and that concerns me.
I heard someone say that passion and purpose are partners. So what does that mean to me? I now wonder what my passion is. Could it be my painting, jewelry making, and cake decorating— what? At the time I was delving in those crafts I had a passion for them but that is long gone.
I’m still struggling with this issue today. Until I get a clear picture I’ll just keep moving forward in the things I do daily. Maybe one day my purpose will be apparent.
Do you know what your purpose in life is? Are you fulfilling your purpose?
