"move toward what moves you for the sake of others" - that has been ringing in my head since i reread the story of Moses and the burning bush.
.
my initial thoughts were that Moses went to look at the bush because it was burning. however, from the verse which i will show in a little bit. he went toward the bush because it was not consumed.
.
burning bushes were common in the desert but this one was not consumed. it got me thinking  God gets my attention is the happenings of everyday. as i am intrigued and move towards the things that move me, i bring to the rest of the world what i am supposed to do. take the case of Moses, if he had not followed his curiosity, he would not have gotten the call from God to go back to Egypt to free the Israelites. .
there is a purpose in the things that stand out to you. pursue those things with wisdom and discernment submitting to God's purpose and you will hear God's dreams and call for your life.
.
.
3 And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” 4 When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” ~~ Exodus 3:3-4(ESV)

  • george of the jungle
.
i was really impressed to see this gorilla create by an amazing artist using old car tires and a few other things. the art work at @nikeartgallery is stunning and so inventive.
.
i would like to go back to #NikeArtGallery some more. i highly recommend going there if you find yourself in Lagos, Nigeria.
.
what works of art have you seen on your travels?

if you know me you know one of my jams is the details. my favorite thing about the details is they are right in front of you but it takes careful observation to see them. my goal is always and forever to help you see what i see and make it interesting. .
.
Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.
--Dale Carnegie

  • the beach
.
if you have known me for any length of time you know i like the beach A LOT!
.
when i saw this set up at my sister-friend's, i knew that we would be fast friends because she loves the beach too. my favorite thing about the beach is the sun, water, and sand in that order.
.
where is your ideal space indoors or outdoors?
.
wherever it is, i hope you are making time to enjoy it this weekend or on vacation!

"All forms of love are necessary, and none are to be ignored, but all of us find some forms of love to be more emotionally valuable to us. They are a currency that we find particularly precious, a language that delivers the message of love to our hearts with the most power. Some types of love are more thrilling and fulfilling to us when we receive them."
- Tim Keller

happy valentine's day! hope you have love expressed to you in your #lovelanguage today!

  • front door entry
.
i looked at this and the words that popped into my head came from John 10:7-11 (ESV):
7 So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
.
my favorite part about these verses is that the Lord laid down His life for me so that i could have abundant life. i rejoice in His gift to me... thank You Lord!🙌🙌🙌
.
i am so glad for the gift that Jesus Christ has given me of eternal life. happy #wisdomWednesday!

  • rest spot at King's Park and Botanic Garden
.
one of my favorite features of King's Park and Botanic Gardens was this beautiful rest spot at that i found after walking through part of the gardens. it was a great chance to sit and take in the beauty i was seeing on a temperate day.
.
as many times as i went back through the park and gardens i did not see all of it. looking forward to the day i get to go back and explore some more.
.
where would you go exploring if you had an opportunity?
