What are you created to do?

If you were to list 5 things that you were created to do, what would they be?

Would it be what you do?
What you enjoy?
What kind of family you have?
How you experience life?

I asked my 12 middle school students to do this today and I was blown away by their responses...
"I was created to":
pray, help others, listen, love, be a girl, share God's love, laugh, dance to honor God, create music, live, learn, write, leave a legacy and so much more!

For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10

And then, tonight - my Sr High Group discussed prayer and intimacy with God...our Abba.
All I have to say is that I love my job. I get to share in some of their deepest joys, fears and hopes. Me. More adults need to get this opportunity because it absolutely changes me and blows me away every time. Every time.

That's all.
