Rise and Shine Blog Friends… It’s Another MONDAY!
Church at Destiny Family Center was amazing yesterday… as always! People were on fire! I hope you were there…
I’m reading again in Isaiah today… got stuck on a couple of VERY COOL verses! Isaiah 49:3-4
He said to me, “You are my servant, Israel,
and you will bring me glory.”
I replied, “But my work seems so useless!
I have spent my strength for nothing and to no purpose.
Yet I leave it all in the Lord’s hand;
I will trust God for my reward.”
Isaiah gets this glorious message from God, “YOU ARE MY SERVANT… YOU’RE GONNA BRING ME SO MUCH GLORY!!” And he replies, “But my work SEEMS so USELESS!”
I too have felt like this so many times before. Have you… ever felt like this before? Ever felt like your life was taking one baby step forward followed with two giant steps backward? Ever felt like no matter how much you aimed for PROGRESS, it all seemed so useless?
Progress is so difficult to assess with a casual glance. There are always good things happening that we cannot see with our human eyes. That’s why we have to learn to trust God for the outcomes of our lives. Our part is to believe him when he says, “YOU ARE MY SERVANT AND YOU WILL BRING ME GLORY!” And then, even when our work seems so to be turning out useless, we must LEAVE IT ALL IN THE LORDS HAND… and TRUST GOD FOR OUR REWARD!
I’ve met and known most of you blog pals… and I can say that you are beautiful people! You are amazing servants of God and your lives are bringing him more glory than you may feel like right now. So smile big today… it’s Christmas time… the season to be JOLLY! Leave the results in Gods hands… trust him to work everything out… and he will do just that!
Have another most outstanding day! Love you guys!!
