Daily Inspiration -- May 24, 2013
Preparing for various Memorial Day celebrations, some people choose to travel while others avoid the freeways and plan gatherings at home with family and friends. However we acknowledge this day, we do wish to remember and appreciate the men and women who have served our country, some having given their all for our freedom. We all seem to be hard-wired to serve a greater purpose, whether it is in the workplace, with our families, or playing in a larger arena in the world. Each one of us has contributions to make, and we needn’t consider their size, for everything we give, large or small, can create a healthy difference in people’s lives, sometimes beyond what we will ever know.
Teachers plant seeds in their students that grow at varying rates and to different degrees. Although the teachers may never see the ultimate results, they have reason to feel satisfaction simply for authentically doing their part and giving their best. We need to trust that the contributions we make in our neighborhoods and at our professions bear greater fruit than we may ever know.
I am trusting that the conscious work the good people of Yuma and I have done together will continue to reveal an inspired future for this beloved spiritual community as they prepare to call a permanent leader. This will be my last Sunday with them and I am grateful for all the gifts we have given and received during these many months. Wherever I may be called next, I look forward to serving and experiencing mutual growth as I bring my best to each situation and expect only the best from it.
What is the great idea you choose to serve today? How would you like to impact your loved ones, your community, and your world? As you expand into a powerful vision, everything needed for its perfect unfolding will be given. You may wish to use the following affirmation:
I am inspired to bring my great talents to make a difference in the world around me, serving with distinction, love, and joy and delighting in my success.
