I have been reminded that not everyone is going to like me. Not everyone is going to like what I have to say. And you know what, that’s okay. It’s really okay. Sometimes it seems easier to just quit and then I remember it’s not about me. I’ve been called to serve others.
We can jump in head first, or we can walk out slow and deliberately, ankle deep, and keep walking until we’re fully immersed in God’s will. Whoever God blesses through us will be exactly who He intended it to be. Nothing we do for Him is wasted.
And then again, maybe we’re well liked but they just don’t care to hear what we have to say. And that’s okay too. Because as I said, if we are faithful to do what God is leading us to do then you can bet somewhere along the way someone, and the word He sent you with, will beautifully collide. And God’s purpose will have been met. That’s the beauty of following the Holy Spirit’s leading.
One of those someone’s is ALWAYS me. When God is dealing with me about something or I have an “aha” moment, I really get excited and I love to share it with all of y’all!
The most important thing is to not give up, keep doing what we know the Lord is leading us to do. Be faithful. This was our message in church this morning, “Faithfulness is love hanging on. Just like Christ was faithful and hung on the cross for you and me.”~~Brother Larry J. DeWitt
Larry’s message really spoke to my heart this morning. I’m thankful that God is faithful.
Whatever God has called you to do, do it. Be faithful, you are making a difference. As a writer I need to want to see people’s names written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life, MORE than I want them to see my name written on a blog, or the cover of a book. Maybe you don’t write, maybe you’re a nurse or a teacher or a stay at home Momma. Whatever we do, do it in the name of Jesus. Colossians 3:23 (NIV) Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters Be faithful in what He has called you to do. Show up and say Here I am God, and let Him do the rest.
Writing is one way I walk with Jesus, how I worship Him and how I serve Him. Tonight I praise Him for what He is doing in my life and yours. He is faithful.
Psalm 117:1-2 O PRAISE the LORD, all ye nations: praise Him, all ye people. For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
