Never bench yourself.
Get in the game, do not sit on the sidelines.
A game is much more fun played.
Even against a team 32 times your size.
It is still better to play.
Even if your team is horribly messed up or doesn’t show up half the time.
God wants you to trust in Him and do what you can.
Because whether it looks like it or not, the truth is that with God, anything and everything is possible.
God made each and every person on the planet with love, designed on purpose and with a special ability or gift to use for Him and others as an act of worship. There are no exceptions here.
So maybe fasting isn’t your thing, maybe it is. Maybe healing isn’t your thing but maybe it is. Maybe art isn’t your thing but maybe it is. So many options, so many needs in the church and kingdom of Jesus. Maybe you just don’t want to use your ability for God. Then don’t claim to be a follower of Christ/ a Christian and that would be a horrible decision. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, then follow Him and use your gifts and abilities He gave you for Him and others.
The church is full of people not doing a dang thing. If you can’t be bothered, don’t even bother going. God made you, made everything that you appreciate, made everything good and on top n of that when we screwed up, Jesus came down here and suffered an agonizing death to redeem us. So what are you doing for Him?
Believing is good and well and may, may squeeze you into heaven, but what is belief without the fruit of that belief? What is the faith without using it to pray? What good is truth without sharing it? What is talk with no action?
We would be in a revival if the church Christians would wake up like it matters. Christians should be about God’s business. He has a lot going on right now. There us a lot of work to do. Christians should be missionary- minded. Christians should not be wrapped up in themselves and the world nor should they ever be lazy.❤
Doing makes being productive, useful and helpful. Being without doing is impotent, bland, wastful. Doing proves the being and gives it function. Learning and memorizing without action makes you an encyclopedia. Application is doing and makes the learning mean something, brings it value.❤
I am great with two groups of people: kids and the elderly. I am not good with the in between ages. That is how it has always been, except my few friends that mean a great deal to me. I used to think I was just weird, and I really am ok either that, prefer it actually. But lately, I think it is my gifting from God, my design. And in my service to others, I excel the greatest when I am working with kids and elders. And I do so as often as I can while still maintaining my responsibilities at home. And I really enjoy coaching 2nd and 3rd grade homeschool P.E. and I just live my kids. We have it every week and it is great. And my kids are feeling like family, telling me all about their weeks, holding my hands while we walk, racing me, giving a hug after class. It is just the sweetest thing. And I would encourage you, whatever age group God built you for, to serve them somehow. It is truly beautiful when we do what we were designed to do. Artists should do art. Musicians should do music. Politicians should really work on their moral code. Lol Do what God made you to do. It is worth the startup effort and God blesses your effort for Him well. ❤
