Being inspired

"...because I hear about your love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus..." Philemon 1:5

There are times when I get to meet some amazing people.   Recently I had the privilege to catch up with a lady who, alongside her husband, has served the Lord in the mission field of remote Queensland for decades.

As she shared stories of floods, hard times, good times, about the mission field,  I was inspired by her honest,  down to earth resilience and humble reliance on the Lord.

What I take for granted living in a rural area, is luxury for the remote areas of Queensland.   Yet,  the love for the people they are serving can be seen.

If you are privledged to spend time with those on the mission field,  really listen.  Be generous with your time, resources and in return you will come away a far richer person.  Not in money, which comes and goes, but in compassion,  learning generosity,  being inspired,  knowing how to pray with focus.

Live life differently. Live with purpose.

Courage does not always roar.  Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ' I will try again tomorrow." Mary Anne Radmacher
