Letting Him Write Your Story!

By: Jennifer Mills
As I sit here at my laptop this morning reflecting on 15 years of ministry, I think back to my 22-year-old self---newlywed and on the cusp of such a beautiful journey of life and ministry. But, oh my goodness, that dewy-eyed newlywed had no idea what was to come. We've all heard the statement "hindsight is 20/20". We see and can understand so clearly when looking in the rear-view mirror, but in the moment, when we are praying, seeking and leaning into the Lord for clarity and discernment, it's hard to see the big picture.

Kronos, referring to general time and the other is Kairos, meaning strategic time, a particular time, a season, an opportune time, the right time, an appointed time. I'm convicted that most days are spent evaluating kronos that has past, fuming over kronos lost or planning kronos coming up rather than living in the kairos. I have missed opportunities of obedience. I have not lingered or left an influence as I could've or should've. So, determined to be aware of the difference....I'm making a concentrated effort to live each day focused on kairos not just kronos. I know that this world is...
