Inspired by . . . a heart for service
I was blessed to receive this beautiful shawl in the mail this week.
Textured with Kim's dreamit texture
My sweet friend Leah sent it to me. It was made by beautiful, dark-skinned women who live in a world vastly different from my own. I don't know their world, but Leah does.
Leah is a missionary with Pioneer Bible Translators. It may surprise you to learn that Leah is not a bible translator. Although she is part of a team that does bible translation, Leah's purpose it to help the people in the towns where she ministers to deal with, and ultimately overcome the trauma they've endured through tragic events that have all too often been part of their daily lives.
Leah has dedicated this time in her life to minister to theses people who have, and are still, suffering so greatly. This is God's call on her life.
I'm not called to do what Leah does. Maybe you are. Maybe you're not.
But we are all called to do something.
The shawl not only keeps me warm, but it reminds me to be intentional.
Intentional about praying for Leah.
Intentional about answering the call to service that God has placed on my life.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Eph 2:10
