EMPOWERING CHRISTIAN WOMEN: What is Ministry? Blogger Widgets

What is Ministry?

Friday, November 13, 2009

Listening, when you’d rather fix the problem.
Searching for the joy, when it’s easier to say “it’s not fair.”
Helping, when you feel like you’re the one that needs the help.
Telling God, “use me,” when you’d rather ask to be rescued.
Encouraging, even when you don’t understand God’s reasoning.
Hugging when it feels awkward.
Saying, “let’s pray right now,” instead of “I’ll pray for you.”
Serving, when you doubt you have anything left to give.
Comforting, by being the flicker of light in others’ dark caverns.

“Do not grieve, for the JOY of the Lord is your STRENGTH.”
~ Nehemiah 8:10
