It was one of those “out of nowhere” thoughts. I hadn’t checked one of my email accounts in almost a week. It was a new email address, not many know about it, but it is where comments from this blog go. So I thought, “Why not just check?”
Well, there wasn’t a comment there…there was so much more. I submitted a blog post to a website, and there, in that rarely used email account, was an acceptance letter. Dated…five days prior.
Oops, but SURPRISE!
It was a perfect situation. Just that morning, my pastor had spoken about living a purposed life. And throughout that day, I continued implementing a plan that had started weeks earlier…one to put my life in order, that it might be abundant.
And there was the acceptance letter.
Oddly enough, it was a post about bruises, about imperfections, and about how God sees beauty in failed attempts…because a failed attempt is an attempt.
So life with purpose and you may not know when the next surprise might come to you.
