Different is good.
Praise Jesus; we’re not created the same. Every single one of us has a purpose; God equips us for whatever it is. None of us serve God the same way, nor should we try to. Our missions fields are as individual as each one of us. People you meet in your lifetime, I will never meet and vice versa. Therefore, God made us unique.
At this point in my life, I’m serving God with my writing. He gave me a passion for writing, birthed from my daily meetings with Him that started decades ago. What began as a five-minute quick read of the Bible has now blossomed into a life I never dreamed I would live. As I continue to seek Him daily, God continues to change and grow me. The process never ends, not until we relocate to eternity.
Find your passion.
Finding your passion and using it as a way to serve God is worth discovering. When what you love combines with God’s mission for you, words can’t express the feeling. At that point, you’re living life to the fullest as Jesus came for us to do.
One easy way to identify your passion is by thinking about the things you love to do. Typically, it’s something you are naturally talented at doing. Whatever the activity is, you’re happiest when you are doing it. Maybe you love working with children or helping the elderly. Maybe you love painting and fixing things around the house. Or perhaps you love walking dogs—anyone of these gifts God can use for serving others.
Find what you love to do. Then find a way to serve others with your passion. Remember, we each serve God differently, but we serve the same God.
Praise God; you are unchanging. Thank You for reminding us; we each serve You differently. Forgive us for expecting others to serve You the same we do. Help us encourage others to serve You in their way, not ours. Give us insight into our passions, help us find what we love most so that we can use it to serve You. All good things come from You. Let us all serve with love today. IJNIP. Amen
