I have definitely not been keeping up with my writing at all. And again ironically today when I am taking the time to write, the daily reading is about being more, being our best for God.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
One of the biggest struggles I have is dealing with the future. There are so many options on what I could do, both in the church and outside of it. I could easily sit back and just keep going with what I have. But is that doing my best for God? If I am not putting any effort into my life, my ministry and my job, what am I doing to give God the glory in my life?
I recently had a conversation with one of the owners of my company. He knew I wasn’t happy at work and wanted to know what was up. We sat down, part of it is the way the company is being run, but I told him the simple fact that is I want to do more with my life. It’s hard to have that conversation with a man who doesn’t believe in God, to him success in business and financial gain were more than enough to measure his life and accomplishments.
Me, I don’t want my life to be measured in numbers. Even in ministry I don’t want to count the people I know, or numbers in my church. The only number that really matters is how many find Jesus and His life changing love. I want my life measured by more. Like, Paul couldn’t have done anymore. Paul had no more to give. I don’t want my life and ministry to come to a close with anything left in the tank. I want to give it all, because God can always give me more.
I’ve soaked it all in, now I want to pour it out. -Braille
