A friend shared this on her Instagram today. It seriously was the perfect thing for me right now. Have you ever felt God wanted you to do something, but you didn’t really feel like it mattered (or matters) when you did it? I have been struggling with this feeling lately. I guess maybe it is because I can’t see the effect it is having. Maybe I never will. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to keep doing something where I can’t see the good that is coming form it. It takes time and effort, with the feeling of no result. I guess maybe it’s a stuck feeling. I like going places, not being stuck! Or maybe God has placed something on your heart that feels kinda scary. Or maybe impossible. Maybe it feels easier to just brush it off because it seems too hard. Maybe it’s something you don’t really even want to do.
Whatever the reason you may feel like walking away from it, be encouraged, God knows what he is doing. Even if it seems easier to just give up, it’s not. Maybe we won’t ever know the good that came from it, but I am confident that if God laid it on your heart, there will be good. It’s kinda hard as humans to be content without seeing results, to want to be noticed. As I think about Jesus, I cannot imagine how he stayed so meek and humble. I mean he was the Savior of the world, but wasn’t treated like it. People mocked him, they made fun of him. He was not given the recognition he deserved. But he just kept going and literally saved the world.
I want that attitude. I want to be content doing God’s will without the need to be noticed. Without the need to have lots of glory and recognition. I don’t want to be scared to do something God calls me to do. I want to do it with with joy knowing whatever God has for me is good.
So wherever you are today dear friend, know that whatever God has laid on your heart is so worth it. Keep going, your doing great!
