Ah-ha moment.....

I was driving in the car this morning, on my way to pick up my daughter from a sleepover and I had another one of those "Ah-ha!" moments.  You know, those ones that really make it feel like God is speaking to you.... reaching out to you?  Every once in awhile, usually while I am alone and have a few moments of quiet to reflect-- which doesn't happen often with 10 kids  ;) - I have one of these revelations.

As I was driving, observing the gorgeous blue sky and smattering of clouds that we have today after many days of rain, it dawned on me.  I looked at all the cars around me, all driving somewhere, people all out doing something, and  This is life. Driving places, doing things, hustle and bustle, work, appointments, etc etc etc.....  This isn't what it is all about, is it God?  It isn't.  He wants us to have so much more!

I looked at that sky, and contemplated this world.  His world.  His creation.  And thought, what does He want us to do with it??  Look at all these THINGS.  Luxury cars, big houses...... nice stuff we humans have created.

Then I looked at that sky again.  AMAZING stuff HE created.

We are all on this planet, turning our own lives into such a rush and putting meaning into the meaningless.  We do it to ourselves.

What does He want for me?  For you?  What is really most important in this world?

I posted on my Facebook wall yesterday a link to another blog whose post really struck a chord in me.  It made me reflect, as I have many times before, on what we should really be living for, striving for in this life.  I urge you to read it... here

As a family, we are really trying in our own lives to figure out what God really wants for us.  Not what WE want but what HE wants.  What HE thinks is best.  Because when we live for Him, for others, is when we find the greatest joy.  The greatest contentment.  When we are living our lives to the fullest.

I wonder if all those people out there hustling and bustling around today know that??
