5/26/09 Think about such things...

From Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge

"The invitations of Jesus come to us in many ways. Sometimes they come through a circumstance, an opportunity that opens before us. Sometimes they come through other people who see something in us that we may not yet see, and they invite us to step forth in some way. But God's invitations ultimately are matters of the heart. They come through our passions, those desires set deep within us. What is it you yearn to see happen-how do you long for the world to be a better place? What makes you so angry you nearly see red? What brings you to tears?

You will find that as God restores your heart and sets you free, you will recover long-lost passions, long-forsaken dreams. You'll find yourself drawn to some vision for making the world a better place. Those emerging desires are invitations-not to rush out and attempt them immediately. That also is naive. They are invitations to bring your heart to your Lover (God) and ask him to clarify, to deepen, to speak to you about how and when and with whom."

What is God currently inviting you to do? Will you accept His invitation?
