100-Word Stroll for 8/31/17: 3 THINGS GOD’S EXPECTING OF ME

Posted by on August 31, 2017

Isn’t it odd to ask God questions while never expecting answers?

Walking this morning, I ran through my daily prayer list.  Then I asked my usual thing of the Lord:  “What’s on our TO-DO list for today?”  Quickly came the response.

“I’m depending on you

  • to do the uncommon thing.”
  • to improve on the *you* you were yesterday.”
  • to write what no one else can.”

The uncom—  “In other words, step away from the herd?  Be positively different?”  I heard God nod.  You can, y’know.

M’kye.  I got the improve part.  Body, mind and spirit, I must take care of myself.  I do.  And I will.

The other?  Nobody else writes exactly as I do, with my combo of humor, intuition, wit, insights and life experience.  They can’t.  Therefore, it’s mine to do.  To be.

Something tells me I’ll hear the same thing tomorrow.

No pressure.

Service.
