We are commissioned to teach others that which we have learned. --AUTHOR JAE ELIZABETH
Have you found in your life that the longer you live on earth, the more curious you become? Do you wake up in the morning curious about starting the day and cognizant of what will become of it? Do you struggle to keep focus on the tasks ahead because there are a variety of roads to explore? Do you find yourself going down various paths when you have an assignment to complete?
We often beat ourselves up about taking these "rabbit trails" in life. We even label people and self-medicate to combat these distractions. But by taking off the condemnation of our imperfection, we can recognize that we are innately created by God to be explorative and curious. In fact, this inner curiosity is indicative our need to connect with the people in the world and venture out. God put that curiosity in you to reach out to others.
When you feel distracted, sometimes that is just an indication of our need to witness. Think about the last time you acted upon your curiosity and the Lord led you down a path to blessings. After all, our connectivity is forged through our common struggles and when we help people, we help ourselves. What opportunities have presented themselves to act out on this curiosity? How can you leave your comfort zone to tell others about the good news of Jesus Christ? How can we help our fellow man?
Trusting that God orders your steps is the beginning of going forth and exploring all that he has for you in this earth. Next time you feel pulled away from a project, pray and discern if it is truly a distraction from the enemy, or a sign you need to connect with others. As you share the good news with others, be encouraged that he who refreshes others will be refreshed himself.
