He has also been teaching me a lot lately. Or at least, trying to teach me. Not sure how good a student I would call myself. (Sadly)
*I want my life to be a song of praise and worship to God - Lord of lords and King of kings, great and mighty God, Abba Father.
To live a life that is honoring to HIM. With every move I make, every breath I take, every word I speak. With all that I am and with everything that I have. To honor HIM.
God has been dealing with me about the ministry of encouragement. And I have questioned if encouragement is truly a ministry.
Yesterday, confirmation was given yet again. I received 58 birthday wishes on Facebook alone! And yes, it DID encourage me. Yes, it DID minister to me.
So, Lord I pray that you will open my heart, my spirit, my eyes - give me the wisdom to know how to encourage others today. Use the encouragement to minister your love and peace and grace.
I am guilty of waiting ... and wondering. And while waiting to not do so much. Wanting to "get all my ducks in a row".
To a degree there isn't anything wrong with that - but then to use it as an excuse not to do anything ... that becomes wrong.
And that is what I have allowed in my own heart and life.
If I continue to wait and watch and wonder - how many more days, weeks, years will I do not much???
I am 50 years old - Lord, help me!!!
Ducks in a row or not - it is TIME TO LIVE LIFE!!! And live it to the fullest.
"And whatever you do whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Colossians 3:17
In the words of Keith Green - "Do your best, pray that it is blest, trust Jesus with the rest."
*I finished reading the book of Esther this morning ... reinforcing the thoughts ... "For such a time as this" ...
What is my purpose here?
What am I here for now?
