Poem: What is Ministry?

Thursday, May 10, 2012

What is Ministry?

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 who 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.

~ Author Unknown

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others,
faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
~ 1 Peter 4:10
