Perspective on Life

Posted on August 26, 2013 in General Ministry, Management, MMI, Patient Stories, Programs, Volunteering | 0 comments

Today is the first day of school for many children all over the world. I am sure many of you have the same feeling that that these kids are growing up way too fast and where has the time gone? Children are such a blessing and we are so honored to be parents and that God entrusted them in our care. It's a similar feeling that our ministry team gets each day we begin our service.

Life is a challenge. The daily trials and tribulations can have an effect on the perspective that we have about life in general. You must take time to step back and assess your priorities. Take some quiet time to reset. What is important to you? What is your passion in life? Are you making the decisions or is someone or something making them for you? Those that are important to you will be the better for it.

We have to do the same thing while working to serve the poor. There is a lot that goes into operating Health Centers, Training Programs, and Project Teams around the world. It is very easy to get so caught up in the daily challenges that we forget to take a step back and remember why we do it. Those we serve are just like our kids, God has placed them in our care and our motivation is seeing their lives take a positive course. It is why we have been called to serve.

It is always great to take the time to reset your life, priorities, and desires. God has placed each of us on this planet for a purpose and I am firm believer that this purpose is more than just the daily grind. We have skills, intelligence, resources, etc. that when focused, can provide incredible satisfaction and motivation to lead a great life. Take the time to take inventory of your goals and refocus the way your life is going. We have a limited time while on this planet, let's make the most of it.
