Be Where You Are

I was listening to a talk by Craig Groeschel at a recent Catalyst conference.
He was talking about how my generation (20/30 somethings) always wants things now.
We want influence that rivals Bill Hybels,
but we don’t want to put in the work and the years it took Bill to get where he is.
Ya know what?
Craig is right.
I’m guilty of that.

But then God gave me this phrase, and I’ve been dwelling and thinking on it for a few weeks now.

Where you are is where God has you. And where he has you is where you’re called to make an impact.  

Dang.
Hit me like a ton of bricks!
Where I am is exactly where God intends for me to be.
And I’d be a fool to think that the reason for my “here” is so that one day I’ll be “there.”
I’m called to BE here.
To learn all I can.
To serve as much as I can.
To give as much as I can.
To love as much as I can.

I’m still learning this…
Don’t get caught in the “someday”
Figure out how you can thrive in the “today”

  1. I love it, Adam.

    I think my favourite part is, “And I’d be a fool to think that the reason for my “here” is so that one day I’ll be “there.” I’m called to BE here.” So often we get so caught up in the process that we forget to be totally present. We want the lesson so we can move on instead of just being here.

    Thank you for sharing.
