I am reading through the Bible with a plan the church is using. It is kind of fun knowing we are all reading the same thing. I’ve done this before with a group in Illinois, and it was delightful when we got together and discussed it. Lovely.
Today, in my reading I came across the name Archippus. I’ve seen the name before and I guess just skipped right over it. My reading today was in Colossians.

There is a spot for every type of personality. Every single one. There’s a spot for you. (Do you love Big Bang Theory? You know, Sheldon has a spot.) Whether you feel like you have a “spot” or a purpose … you do.
Do you, at times, feel like you are sitting in someone else’s chair? Perhaps you don’t think you are entitled to sit in the cool chair you have been given. But you are. Why not you? That chair can be for you!
One way to make your life easier is to stop trying to fit into someone else’s chair. And don’t make someone fit a seat that you choose for them instead of allowing them to sit in the seat they were made to sit in. If you aren’t sure of your spot, start by believing there is a spot that is just for you. Because there is. Believe it!
