This week is officially the beginning of a new year of K-Life. It’s truly hard to believe that this is my fourth year of full-time K-Life. And this is probably the most excited I’ve been. This is going to be a great year.
It’s funny how over time my mantra has changed, or perhaps I’ve developed one… From that first year when I was so excited, but learning what K-Life meant here instead of as a volunteer in Bolivar; to now, where I am slightly more seasoned.
That mantra, that I feel like I say way too often, is just so hard not to have on my heart. It’s not about having everything done perfectly, or trying to compete with the other distractions in kids lives, or even about always having the best conversation, it’s about being faithful. My job, not only as the K-Life guy, but as a human Christian dude, is to be faithful to what God has called me to, and to be faithful with what he’s given me. Be faithful. It’s my job to be faithful to what God has asked.
For me, what I think God has asked is simple, and a favorite verse. Matthew 22:34-40, Jesus is asked about the greatest command, and He simply states, Love God with everything you are, and love your neighbor as yourself, the whole Law depends upon these two. I love that. If I am surrendering to the heart change God wants to bring, then my whole life will be centered around that idea, of loving God and others.
That’s what I think God has called me to. My mantra is simple because I believe my purpose is simple. Be faithful to what God has called me, and that’s to Love Him, and love others.
I hope God helps me to daily surrender to a simple life of love and gives me hope that the next day, He will renew my ability to abide in Him.
