It has been an interesting few months around our place. Since March I've been working full time, raising Layla, planting a faith community and being apart of our arts community through VOX and hanging out with Tim when I can steal a moment.
I think God allows us to go through times when life feels truly chaotic in order to help us focus and see what we really want in our lives and what He is calling us to.
Tim and I truly believe in the reasons why we came to Toronto. We came to the amazing city to make a difference. We believe that God is at work here and that we get the privilege of working beside him to make Toronto a better city.
I have been reading through the Sermon on the Mount and I really stopped and concentrated on the phrase -"We are the salt of the earth". I was thinking about what salt does to food. It brings out the favour. Tim and I are in Toronto to help make Toronto taste better - to bring out the good things that God has placed in this city. Those good things are all around us because people are made in the image of God - God has placed His imprint in us. We so desire for the people here in Toronto to see the goodness of who God is and how He has already been working in their lives.
All this to say I can feel God sharping my focus as our family walk through this time of what feels like chaos. I'm looking forward to the ways that He is calling to this city through Montage.
