Chapter 27: The Story (pg 183)
Quote of the Day:
“I always learn a lot from Adam. I want a boat or a motorcycle or a hot air balloon named The Story too. I think we should all get back to building that rocket ship we dreamed of when we thought about what our life would be about. I want to be doing things today, not just flipping through crinkled and yellowed mental pictures of what happened a long time ago. I need my own vehicle to get there, though; we all do. That vehicle will look a little different for everyone. One boat size, one story size, doesn’t fit all. We each need to get into something of our own each day, something that will take us to a new place, a place that needs us. Perhaps I’ll name my boat Whimsy and try to untie it from the dock in my mind at least once a day and take it for a lap. Maybe you will too.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pgs. 188
Romans 12: 6-8
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Putting Love into Action:
Get back to building that rocket ship you dreamed of when you thought about what your life would be about. Not sure what that is? Ask God – talk to Him about it. Spend some time searching in Him and ask Him to reveal to you what He wants you to get to doing.
Time to hear some dreams! What dream(s) have you had over your life that God might be bringing back to your mind? What does that look like for you? What vehicle do you need? What would you name your “boat”?
