I’m still trying to figure out what I want to accomplish here. What does God want me to do here? My life is not all that exciting. My circle is not that many. How can I add value to someone?
I used to think I had nothing of value to offer the world. But then I realized I was rejecting God’s creation. I had to ask the Lord to forgive me. God created male and female in His image. Then He blessed them. (Gen 1:27-28). God’s assignment to every human being is to be fruitful and multiply. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines fruitful as abundantly productive. Not just producing offsprings but living a productive life. A life that reflects the obedience of the most important commandments in Matt 22:36-39, love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. And love your neighbor as yourself.
Lord, I need and ask you to help me to love myself in a balanced way, so I can love my neighbors. Help me to be patient with myself. Help me show mercy to myself. Teach me how to set myself free of expectations. Then I can be patient with others. Then I can extend mercy to others. Then I can free others from expectations and love them the way You have loved me.
I will start out sharing this journey here. How the Lord changes my heart and opportunities I have to demonstrate God’s love to others.
Let me know if you can relate to my challenge. If you’ve already walked this path please share your experiences. I would love to hear from you.
