Morning Walk

MV102913 095-LR

The air is cool and crisp, the brightly colored leaves are still as the birds sing their joyous song.  The smell of the grass is strong in the fresh air, and there is a slight scent of smoke. the leaves on the ground crunch as I walk along taking in the sights, sounds and smells of a new morning. My mind fills with images of the past and think of those great and small who have walked these grounds before. George Washington and his guests used to bowl on this green, and the generations since have come to call.

This was once a place of great industry and great men of high purpose, and I wonder if we have such purpose about our lives.

Many do have a great purpose to their lives, and while this purpose may not be recorded in the annuls of the Republic like those who came here in centuries past, our purpose is even greater then theirs if our purpose is also God’s purpose.  Many believe hat God had a great plan in the birth of this Nation.  I don’t know about all of that, but I do know that He has a purpose for us today.  It is probably not in building a Republic, for His purpose is about building a Kingdom, His Kingdom.

So, refreshed in the cool morning air, and inspired by all that is around me, it’s time to head into a new day of making disciples and building the Body of Christ on this earth.  May all of us begin our days with this vision, a vision of God’s purpose fulfilled in our lives.

What a wonderful experience life can be when it is filled with God’s work!

  1. One of my fav places to visit, and I love your positive perspective….I needed it today. Thanks for reminding me that we are here to do Kingdom work. It is easy to lose focus on that when the voices of this world, and indeed from your local city, are so loud and discordant.
