What if we all claimed our anointing?
I want to do more than meet expectations or even exceed expectations.
I want to chart a new course.
I want to do things no one has done in a way no one has yet conceived.
Not just to do them or to say that I have done them, but because…
I want to lead people into a new day in this new way,
a way that feels old, like an old friend they know and have always known.
Love goes that deep.
I want to go there.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” ~ Luke 4:18-19

this is really beautiful and inspiring! ❤
Thank you. Inspired by the heart and soul of the young woman I took to dinner last night…. she’s in The Theater School at DePaul.
Thanks for these thoughts. Our church is engaged in a process of discernment as to our next focus of outreach into our community here in Portland, Oregon. There are as many ideas as there are good people sharing them. It will be helpful to observe those passionate ones. It is time to ask for God’s anointing as we “chart a new course”. Blessings, Mary Gentry

There is much discernment needed as harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. The needs are great and the desire to help is powerful. Thank you so much for your comment. I have just published a devotional work book called Made to Move: Knowing and Loving God Through Our Bodies, and you have reminded me that God made us not only to move as individuals but to move as His Body in our world. May your discernment be fruitful and God’s direction, clear.
