I have been reading a few of my favorite books written by my absolute hero, Max Lucado. If you haven’t read any of his books, you simply must. I promise you will be inspired and entertained all at once.
He has a brilliant way of sharing stories and teaching truths that resonate in my heart, as he ignites the fire of my faith through every word he places on the pages. He’s just that good. Pick up any one of his books, and you’ll see…
I just finished three of his books… yup. *Feeding feels good* I listen to his audio books when I am driving my kids around town, and waiting in pick up lines. It’s the BEST use of my time EVER. The three I finished are: “Come Thirsty“, “In The Grip of Grace“, and “Just Like Jesus“. All worthy of my time and my heart. Yours too.
In “Just Like Jesus” Max shares so many enlightening stories, and I want to share one of his with you. It’s about the Lighthouse Keeper. Oh friends, did this speak to me. We only have so much fuel to keep our lighthouses lit. We must discern who and where we give our energy. Amen?
This blog? I consider this blog my greatest passion and calling. I want to write, in hopes to encourage and inspire as many hearts as I can. This…
Is My Lighthouse.
Oh yes, I must dispense my fuel with wisdom and grace- as my family always comes first. And yes, there are dear friends and ministries in my real life that need light too. Those are a given. But this blog? It’s my true mission. I want my lighthouse to be seen for miles… guiding and leading those ships in the dark night. So I will take this time to re-evaluate how I carefully distribute my fuel, so that I can be purposeful in my mission while balancing my home-front too.
This surely is no easy feat.
Today I am over at SheShares.com sharing Max Lucado’s story and its message. I believe every one of you friends will benefit from reading it. Perhaps, you too can reflect and realign your life to fulfill your Lighthouse’s mission as well. We all have many purposes in our lives, and sometimes we tend to give out more fuel than we have, until there is nothing left and our tanks are empty. It’s so hard to say no, isn’t it? Ah…me too.
Come be inspired by my friend (he just doesn’t know it) Max, and share your thoughts okay?
See you THERE!!!
