My True Purpose

If I am to follow Him, who suffered and bled for me, I must be on the right path if I am suffering for someone else. Short of a life dedicated to it, there is nothing bigger I am capable of. My tears at his pain and holding him as he slowly disappears each day is laying down my net and taking up my cross.

I'm not on the outside looking in, or feeling guilty over all the things I should be doing. I've been awakened to what a servant truly is. This is a privilege because I'm not longer wondering what MY PURPOSE is. The me from before is long gone.

  2. Steve is so blessed to have you in his life! So many never experience the kind of love you two share. My heart breaks for what you two are going through but at the same time I am relieved that Steve has you by his side for comfort. I pray daily that you both find peace without pain. Blessing and prayers for you both!

  4. John 16:20
    New International Version (NIV)
    Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.
