..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

We Are Sent By God With A Purpose

We seldom realize fully that
we are sent to fulfill God-given
tasks. We act as if we were
simply dropped down in creation
and have to decide to entertain
ourselves until we die.

But we were sent into the
world by God, just as Jesus was.
Once we start living our lives
with that conviction, we will
soon know what we were sent to do.
- Henri Nouwen
