I’m all in

pokerchips.gifI’m finding my rhythm with my new routine.  I get up everyday at 5:37 AM.  I’m on the bus by 6:35AM.  I’m in the city by 7:21AM.  I’m at Cosi by…you get the idea.  If only I could get to sleep at a decent hour.  I could probably fall asleep right now for the whole night. 

Exciting stuff, eh?  Along my rut, I’m recognizing many faces.  It seems like everyone in my path is on the same track.  Some of the people I admire.  Some I would like to know.  Some I would like to avoid.  But…they all have one thing in common.  God has placed them in my path for a reason. 

The other morning, I listened to a sermon from Mosaic Church in Los Angeles.  Erwin McManus really messed with my mind.  He spoke on how we should all get our fingerprints on other people, just as other people should have thier fingerprints on us.  Instead of rambling through my day, I want to be used by God during my commute.  I want to be used by God in the marketplace.  I want to be used by God in my family.  I want to be used by God everywhere I go.  I want my fingerprints all over the place…to the glory of God.  I want to be intentional with my life.

Throughout my day, I was reading my Field Manual to Small Groups.  What is awesome is that the material written is part of who I already am.  I am enjoying what I see God doing in The Sanctuary.  I had a thought.  I’m all in.  All of my chips are on the table, and I’m fully invested in the hand that God has dealt to me.  I don’t have a plan B.  I want to be where I am…not only with church, but with work.  I want everything in which I am involved to succeed.
