A dear friend of mine shares that he understands his purpose in life is to simply be a blessing for others. It is such a beautiful encouragement to hear that from him and to see the ways that he truly lives it out. For him, that is a foundation for his life, if not the foundation. This morning, I read about foundations and hope in Psalm 62:5-6
For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
I got to praying this morning about what are the foundations for me like my friend’s foundation of being a blessing. And I thought about finding and sharing beauty. That is not only a foundation for my own personal life but also in how I see what I am called to share in the world. There is so much ugliness in the world and so much that doesn’t reflect the Creator – I see one of my gifts is being able to see and share that beauty with others. So that is a foundation for me that gives me hope each day and I see it as a foundation for how I serve and share in the world.
