I got a call yesterday from a counselor who is working with someone I care for dearly. She wanted me to check in with the individual to make sure they were on track. I tried to do this last night but it was just a few minutes ago that they called me. Yes, he is on track and doing what needs to be done. I have prayed so much for this person over the past couple years. At times I simply prayed that God would do whatever it took to bring him and his thinking around. He couldn’t see “success” for himself. Now, that has begun to change. God has a team of support around him which is bolstering his spirit and belief. I love seeing this take place. God is so loving and amazing.
There is something about serving God over time which unexpectedly changes yourself. It is hard to find words to describe what I mean. But, it’s like the things you may be good at no longer have an ego attached to them. I may feel confident addressing something, but the need to prove anything in so doing is gone. All you really want is for God to be glorified for I learned that any effective work which is sustaining is a gift from God, not a product of our self-crafted skill. It is a privilege and honor to serve this God of ours. How much I love Him!
