I fell at times that the time and effort I give for others just doesn’t seem either enough or good enough. This week has been no different, as I’ve felt several times as though no matter how much I do, and how much time I spend helping and doing things for others, I still seem to fall far short of what they need or want from me.
To be honest, I feel that physically I do as much, if not more than I really should, so why do I still feel so useless?
I think there are two simple answers to that question…
- All those who mean the most to me are in need, and that means I want to help them
- I’ve not taken all my feels/concerns to God and left them with Him
As I said in yesterday’s blog post All of Me, God wants us to give our all to Him, not just the bits of our life that we pick and choose. Sadly I’ve proved yet again that I have failed to give my all to God, despite knowing and, if I’m honest, pretending that I have given Him my all.
God can, and will, help me to be all I need to be to those around me, so I must trust Him to help me be all He needs and wants me to be.
Don’t try to do everything in your own strength, because, as I’ve proved yet again this week, our own strength is not enough, whereas God’s strength is perfect.
