NEVER FORGET THE AWESOMENESS OF YOUR OWN PERSONAL CALLING!
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
When we are not operating in our calling there is confusion, competition, jealousy, frustration, resentment, and more. Something important doesn’t get done, we work in our own power and ministry doesn’t receive our best.
But when we do operate in our gifts and callings there is fulfillment, peace, teamwork, collaboration and usually success. Amazing things get done, things fit, we work in God’s power and ministry gets our best effort!
We must not forget what we are called and gifted to do and why we are doing it!
If we forget that everything we do is ministry, reaching someone for Jesus, creating places for people to meet with God, encouraging those who struggle, strengthening marriages, discipling kids & teens, then we’re just making coffee, telling Bible stories, giving hugs, playing music & singing songs!
