Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.
This scripture stood out to me the most this past week. 1 Chronicles 28:20.
I love to serve. It makes me happy. I love the feeling of having a purpose. But there are challenges I face. Fear. Thoughts run through my head. “Do people want me to do this?”, “I bet they wish someone else was doing this”, “Should I wait for someone to ask me?”, “I am not cool enough to be so involved”.
Unfortunately, these are the lies that Satan puts in my head. The people who are involved and serving are rarely the people who are asked. There is a lot of work to do and someone has to do it. If I am honest with myself if someone has to ask me to help out I have already removed myself too much.
I wonder if I am the only one who feels this way. Do other people just not want to help out?Does it feel like a burden to them? Or do other people feel like I often do. Waiting for someone to say that they have potential and should step it up.
So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty. – Luke 17:10
