Recently at my church, one of our Pastor's - Jason Helveston - talked to us about the biblical verse Micah 6:8. Basically to 'DO' justice - 'LOVE' mercy - and 'WALK' humbly.
Do you notice the 'call to action' in front of 'justice', 'mercy' and 'humbly'???
We are to DO - LOVE - WALK.
I know God is telling me to get out on the front lines to serve others vs. behind the keyboard. Blogging is certainly a gift and it's enjoyable but, I believe that God meant so much more when He said 'DO' - 'LOVE' - 'WALK' in respect to justice, mercy and humility.
And I am certain God has much more in store for me on the dirt floors of villages in both the United States & other countries where animals and children desperately need our help.
With that being said, Snapshots of Wellness is a brand that is now thriving as a leading wellness resource in the city of Chicago. And the blog will continue to have a presence via integrative & holistic health content. Wellness is an all encompassing lifestyle & journey that I am passionate about sharing with others.
There is so much more to my personal journey though....there always has been.
And I am starting to feel God's tug on my heart.....to be of service more in the actual world vs. the virtual one. Thus, you will notice that content as well as frequency of content will continue to change as God gives me direction.
My ultimate goal is to be so entrenched in serving children & animals as well as sustainable agriculture, that my involvement on social media is minimal (with the exception of documenting photo-graphical experiences & interviews via other blogs). If I am blogging, I want to be blogging about my experiences 'on the front lines' of 'doing justice' or making a difference somehow. And if I am not blogging about these two topics, I don't want to blog at all.
So, I am plotting my vision & strategic plan moving forward with the help of Donald Miller's Storyline Conference. And life is going to start looking very different for me (as God intended).
An amazing example of someone 'doing justice' - 'loving mercy'- and 'walking humbly' is Christy Turlington Burn's, Every Mother Count's organization. Please get educated and if you feel led, involved!
