Encounters

Throughout life people will intentionally be placed across your path.  Some people you encounter will only pass through.  Others will be woven into the tapestry of your existence.  Both have value and purpose.

You will be loved and despised.  You will teach and be taught.  You will be tested and stretched.  Some will welcome you while others may never open themselves up grasp your outstretched hand.  The contents of heaven and earth will pass through you and into those you encounter.  To some you may be a rushing wind that brings release.  To others you may be a flame of fire that consumes or a wave of refreshing water, refreshing a weary traveler. 

You will be molded and shaped to bring forth your purpose in each encounter.  Go with it.  Open yourself to be used freely as an instrument in the hands of our great Creator and watch the world around you unfold in new and wonderful ways.  You may be humbled at times.  The glory of the Lord does not submit to the pride of man. 

You don't have to be perfect. You just have to be willing.  "Here am I Lord, send me..."
