Gaining the Whole World

"I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul"

It's the line of a song that has resonated with me lately. As I think of the year to come, and wonder of it's possibilities, it reminds me to keep my focus.

There are so many things I COULD do - and many that the world perhaps says I SHOULD do. But I don't want the world.

I want "God-connect". That. That wonderful ASL sign whose meaning English words fail to fully capture. I'll have to show it to you's awesome. Really, really awesome. And, it's what I want. And when I feel it, it's all I want.

Yes, there are tons of things I'd love to buy or have - but nothing that I need. "All I have needed Thy hands hath provided...." I have what I need. And for that I am grateful.

I want to continue to serve...Joyfully. I want to continue to be where God would have me.

May I hear clearly. May I follow.
