“I am the firm foundation on which you can dance and sing and celebrate my Presence. This is My high and holy calling for you; receive it as a precious gift. Glorifying and enjoying Me is a higher priority than maintaining a tidy, structured life. Give up your striving to keep everything under control – an impossible task and a waste of precious energy.” Jesus is Calling, by Sarah Young

My father, Charles Edward Cary, Jr., wrote this phrase in a letter to me in 1979. “We are in this life to spend and to be spent.” Sadly, I have spent most of my life trying to maintain a tidy, structured life and keeping everything under control.

Paul spent his life spreading the Gospel and worked to support himself, 2 Corinthians 12:14, 15. On top of that he paid the expenses for others out of his own income.

Acts 21:24, “Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses…”

How will you spend your life?
