Another new person joined our Community Group tonight— a Seattle University student, no less. Funny how things come full circle. Mostly we just talked and prayed about our lives together. So many of us are facing (with pain or hope or both) versions of the same question, one of the questions: "Who am I?" God longs to answer that one, to invite us to fill our lives more and more with Him, to become and become more fully who we were uniquely created to be.

By the day, the fact that God wants to change my life grows more apparent. He's provided me with an excellent job, good friends, and the grace of knowing Him. I want to truly live into and live out of His blessing. That will call me to greater discipline and deeper relationship. Many little conversations and scattered observations point me in this direction. Do Your work in me, Lord, and grant me Your Spirit that I may join You in Your work.

What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ...

—Paul (Philippians 3:8)
