Confidence in Serving
As we enter the month of February, Valentine’s Day approaches;
Thoughts of love inundate the mind and the heart. We tend to focus
on the romantic love that is portrayed so heavily in the media
this time of year through greeting card commercials and the large
displays of holiday gifts and candy. The emphasis is on the affection
of the heart, the inner emotional being, of one person for another.
We all desire the companionship and comfort that such a
relationship could bring.
What if we put that same over‐the‐top emphasis on the relationship
that God wants with us? How would that look? What would
change? This month, instead of letting the commercialism of the
“love” holiday overtake us, let’s take control of our emotions and
concentrate on seeking God and the love He offers to each of us.
Let Him be the passion that fills us to overflowing. We will have an
overabundance of deep abiding love that we must share with others
through acts of agape service. And, if sharing or serving in that
way does not come naturally to you, if you are not sure how or if
you can be used of God, then seeking Him with all your heart will
surely reveal the answers and instill the needed confidence to step
out in faith.
The upcoming Men’s Emmaus Walk present excellent opportunities to
grow and exercise that God given confidence. How will He reveal
himself through you?
“There is nothing more fulfilling than asking God to reveal Himself
to you and then letting Him reveal Himself through you.” –

and Live in the Security of God’s Promises
