Eyes Focused and Clear

My friend texted me today and said she prayed this specific prayer for me today.  How thoughtful and wise that my friends would pray such a thing over my life.

"That's why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn't stop thanking God for you -- every time I prayed, I'd think of you and give thanks.  But I do more than thank.  I ask -- ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory -- to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him -- endless energy, boundless strength!"
  | Ephesians 1:15-19

"Eyes focused and clear."

Oh, that God would peel back the veils from my eyes so that I may see the treasure of knowing Him glimmer and glean and shine.

Mug N' Muffin

Pack 60 girls into one living room.  Bake 150 muffins.  Brew 2 pounds of coffee.  Sport your favorite mug and pajamas.  And what do you get?  Our first CRU Mug N' Muffin!

We had a blast!  We snuggled in together on the first official autumn day, with a crisp cool breeze sweeping through, and we learned one another's thoughts on God, eternity, and living a life of legacy.  

Inward & outward beauty come from living according to that for which we were precisely created.  I humbly suggest we were created for life to invest solely in two things: God and People.

What do you think you were created for?  Any thoughts?
