GOD PAUSE: During my quiet time the past couple of days, I'm reading the story of Samson --- one of my favorites. I love how his daddy asks the angel of God “When your promise of a son comes to pass, what instructions do you have for us to raise him? And what will be his mission in life?” Well, Samson's mission is a lot like yours and mine. Judges 13:25 says “The boy grew, the LORD blessed him, and the Spirit of the LORD began to move in him.” Dear Papa, your mission for our lives is pretty simple. We need Your faithful hand of blessing to rest upon us. And for your Spirit to move in and through us all of our days. Every day. So direct our steps as we move our feet. Amen and amen.
