Sometimes my call feels too small.
“…we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Sometimes it seems as though others are serving Him in much bigger ways.
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Sometimes I feel as though the way God has gifted me doesn’t measure up.
“ There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-6
Sometimes I wonder if anyone notices the ways in which I am serving.
“Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”
Sometimes I question whether I am making any difference in the lives of others.
“The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers…”
1 Corinthians 3:8-9
Sometimes I wonder if I am really doing what God desires of me.
“Therefore I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Sometimes I sense that God just wants me to stop.
Be with him
“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
