A question...

Just going to leave you with a question today

And the most important part is who is asking:


"What do you want Me to do for you?"

He asked this twice, when being sought out by two different people for two very different reasons.

I'm not concerned about the answer. What I want to know is your motive? Or more so, MY motive.

What do I want Him to do and WHY?

Now I'm going to go answer it.

I've found that I get results faster -- particularly in the middle of a job search or other major transition -- if I turn that question around and ask God what He wants me to do for Him.

When my request is a simple "Thy will be done, and please help me accept it," the solutions seem to present themselves much faster than when I hand God a big to-do list based on my narrow human perception of what I need or want. Guess that's because we can't help but be blessed when we're earnestly striving to do God's work.

It's usually a more interesting ride, too. :)
