a united purpose
In recent years, Jon has been asking me how we might serve the Lord in unity. We were both involved in ministry at our church, but we rarely crossed paths! He was serving in leadership in areas where I was not involved and vice versa.
Finally, our opportunity came! We were asked to lead a short term outreach to the Dominican Republic. Here, we brought our unique strengths and talents together to serve our team and the missionaries well. I am a planner, and I scheduled our team members’ daily ministry, and Jon, the financial guru, managed all of the funds for the trip.
In this current season, we see with greater clarity the united purpose God has for us as we surrender our lives to His divine plan. There is nothing more satisfying than finishing each day knowing that, together, we made an impact in the lives of others for the glory of God.
We’re not fully operating in the vision that we have received from God, but we believe to be closer today than we were yesterday! I challenge each married couple to seek the Lord’s guidance on your united purpose and to take the necessary steps to move in that direction.
