Can we really all do something for God? Of course we can!

No two of us are the same. No two of us have the same talents or skills. No two of us have the same knowledge or experience. But we all have life experience and God given talents.

That’s why God needs each of us. He needs people with all sorts of skills, and therefore he needs each of us. We just need to be willing to do what God wants us to do!

Are you ready and willing to do what God wants you to do?

Sometimes this is all we need to remember…

But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength ~ 2 Timothy 4:17 (NIV)

There can be times in our lives when strength to face another day can seem a million miles away – it’s during those times in particular that we must always remember that God will give us strength.

We find rest in those we love,  and we provide a resting place in ourselves for those who love us ~ Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

When we’re in the presence of those we love, something happens to us, we relax, we be ourselves, we show our love openly in both our words and our actions. It’s good to be in the presence of those we love isn’t it. It can be particularly restful when we’ve had a tough day, and go home to spend time with our loved ones.

That’s why I’m thankful I can  say I have a place where I can relax, my home with my husband.

I pray you too may be able to spend some time of peace and relaxation with your loved ones on a regular basis.

God is good – He provides all we need to get through our busy and stressful lives.

Romans 12:9-11 (NIV)

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

I’m sure you’ve heard the following saying many times

God first, myself last, and others in between

It can be hard to put everyone else’s needs ahead of your one at times can’t it?

I know I personally find this hard a lot of the times, as in the last while I feel I get little chance to relax and chill for any more than just an hour or so at a time, as I’m having to do a lot of things for various other folks a lot of the time that I’m not at work. It can be hard on us physically and emotionally when we get little time to ourselves, however it can also be very rewarding when those we’re helping tell us how grateful they are for our help.

So why is it easier to put some people’s needs in front of our own than others?

It’s probably easier to put others first when they are people we love and care about, However God commands us to love all others, including our enemies and the unloveable, so we must try to love everyone, and put everyone’s needs in front of our own.

God will provide for us all we need, so don’t be afraid to put other’s needs in front of your own. God loves us, so we must love everyone too.
