Ever know that God is calling you to something, but are waiting for his timing? After being involved with a women's ministry for a number of years, I've decided it's now my turn to serve at a deeper level. I'm excited, yet a tad intimidated by the commitment and responsibility.
The women I will be serving with are amazing, rooted women of faith. They are taking an active role in shepherding me and encouraging me so that I might do the same for others. One of the ladies said to me today, "You don't need to be the source, you need to go to the Source." Now that puts everything into perspective, doesn't it?
Like so many things God asks of us ... we have to hold onto Him to do any kind of a decent job. Because if we are resting upon our own strength, perched upon our own resources, we are at risk of washing away when the tide comes in. And the tide ... the waves ... they always come.
But in Christ, when we are rooted in Him and strengthened in our faith with a teachable spirit, the overflow is not overwhelming, but instead, thankfulness.
Now doesn't an abundance of thankfulness sound nice?
