I Need You.

I love YouVersion.  I love that I have access to the bible and dang near any translation at the sweep of my little finger.  And, when I read Galatians 6:4-5 in The Message translation, well, I was convicted.

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others.  Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.

Is this translation not the awesomest?  Yes.  Awesomest.  Look it up.  It’s a word.

I’m just kiddin’.  It’s not really.

I love this.  I love that it made me take my eyes off of other people and what they are doing, or not doing, for the Kingdom.  Puh-retty judgmental of me, don’t ya think?  Yeppers.  Grrr you, Dusty Takle.  There were times I would look at others and wonder why they weren’t as passionate about something as I was.  Never mind that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made….that we were each created for a unique purpose. 

I am responsible for my own life.  And, you are responsible for yours.  I know.  My life revelations are astounding, eh?  Eh?

Here’s the deal, in case you don’t know or may have forgotten:

God created you.

You are not an accident.

He has a plan for you. 

You have a purpose in life.

You matter.

And, we all need you.

Y’all come back tomorrow.  I’ll be here.

For real.

  4. There is nothing Random about you or your wisdom Dusty.

    You got me today and made my eyes open WIDE!

    I had posted something sent to me on my website -(www.TheKindnessRevolution.ME on the Misc page) and I posted it to stand up for my “personal thoughts” and thought I was protecting “sets” of people who were being judged and chastized those I thought were being judgemental.

    After reading your post I realized I was being JUDGEMENTAL in the process… I hope you don’t mind – I left my original posting up and pasted in your message below – with an “I was caught” message for all to see…

  5. And I second Judy’s message – I have missed reading your words of wisdom!
