Please take a moment to watch this. This has become one of my favorite songs and one of my biggest prayers, that I would live outside of “Population Me.”
I had the amazing opportunity to serve my community this weekend and to give back. The college and career group from our church spent Saturday morning at a sharing center putting together almost 300 Easter baskets for our local community. It was SO much fun and I think it’s safe to say I was probably more blessed putting them together then the sweet kids who will be receiving them.
I was humbled by the whole experience. There was NEVER a year when I was a kid that the Easter Bunny (my Mom, ha) didn’t come to visit me. But it truly broke my heart to think that there are families out there that don’t have the means to put a meal on their table when the holidays come around, or to make Easter a little but sweeter for their kids and be able to put a basket together for them. I won’t meet the families that receive these baskets, but I hope the touch of my hands, will touch their hearts.
It has been my heart’s desire that God would open up doors to be able to give up myself and give of my time to make a difference in my community, to reach out and touch the lives of others. And this is the first of MANY doors I hope that God will open.
Saturday, was a good “Lauren, get over yourself, moment.” And I think we ALL need that. I could tell you about all the other weekend highlights. But this is the one that truly matters the most.
What if there's a bigger picture
what if I'm missing out
What if there's a greater purpose
I could be living right now
outside my own little world.
I would hope that when I look back on my life that I can look back with great certainty that my purpose was served here on earth. That I loved God with my whole heart, loved people, and loved well. I love blessing others. It's much better to give then to receive. I know that there's an amazing God that loves me and will never leave me nor forsake me. There's alot of peace in that when this world can let us down. He's my constant, the one thing that remains the same in this ever changing life of mine. I look towards the future with great hope and expectancy. With hope that God has an amazing path for me, and just pray that my every step will be guided and directed by him as I walk this journey called life!
