I received a thank you note in the mail last week. It was beautifully handwritten. You could see the time and effort put into preparing this note.
What did I do to deserve such a note? I obeyed God. An act of kindness directed by the Lord. Nothing of me. All from Him. I sat there humbled by this thank you note.
When I serve God, I focus on Him. But serving God has a ripple effect. Lives are touched. Most of the time, we never see it. We never know how our service impacts others unless they tell you or you get a note in the mail. A note that shows you that serving is about the little things. The daily walk with God, feeling that pull and responding.
Some many people feel as though they are not equipped or qualified to serve God. That is just not true. You were made for this. God has carefully crafted you. He loves you and He will walk beside you through your service. Your service can be powerful, if you allow it.
You have no idea how many lives you can touch by simply doing what the Lord has called you to do.
I want everyone to have the feeling I felt reading that note. Here am I Lord, send me!
