Are you ever busy? Does it seem like you never have any time for yourself? Do you feel like you are always running around doing things for others and often neglecting yourself? If you feel this way, then take a moment and realize it does not have to be a bad thing. You just have to make sure your motivation is right!
Like most of my weeks, this has been a very busy week. I was spending a little time with my Creator this morning thinking back over my week and all of the things that I have been involved in. And I realized; I spend a lot of my time doing things for other people. In fact almost everything I do is for someone else and that’s cool!
It also hit me that my doing for others ultimately is the best thing that I can do for myself, because it brings me a purpose and fulfillment that in the grand scheme of thins help me to know that I matter. This all got me to thinking about my motivation and the bottom line is this: I do what I do because I love God! Because I love God, I love others. I know that each person, even the difficult are God’s special creation and that He has a purpose and plan for each of our lives. Because I love God and love others, I serve God by serving others!
When I serve others, I glorify God! When I glorify God, I do what I was created to do! When I do what I was created to do, I enjoy the fulfillment of accomplishment! Please understand that this is not bragging. It’s just me having one of those moments of realization that makes me thankful that even when I’m not thinking about it, God is guiding and growing my life in very special ways.
God is awesome! Let Him work in and through your life by serving others to glorify Him! You will be glad you did!
