I ask in today’s On-Purpose Minute, “Where Is Your Pure Joy?”
Life has a way of crashing in on those divine activities uniquely designed to bring us joy. I think of Eric Liddell’s statement near the end the movie Chariots of Fire and as recounted in Wikipedia:
Eric’s sister Jennie worries he is too busy running to concern himself with their mission, but Eric tells her he feels inspired: “I believe that God made me for a purpose (the mission) … , but He also made me fast, and when I run, I feel His pleasure.”
So what about you?
When do you feel God’s pleasure?
What activity have you been denying yourself that serves to refresh and renew your spirit, yet the cares and concerns of the world would crush? Where is your pure joy?
