Do you ever feel like you should be doing something more with your life?
I do not want this post to sound like I am not happy with my life - because I am EXTREMELY HAPPY! I have my husband and my sweet little Ava Grace that makes me laugh and appreciate life everyday...
I just feel like I should be doing something extra with my life. Just a little something more for others. I wake up some days and have this feeling that there is someone that needs me beyond my immediate family.
One of my good friends and me were talking the other day... We always have great talks about God and religion and being the best Christian that we can be. She was telling me that her service last week was about facing Jesus when we die. Jesus loves that we do things for others and spread his word but she said that her Priest said that we should imagine Him saying this...
"What did you do to glorify My name with the talents that I have blessed you with?"
To be completely honest - I have NEVER really thought about it like that. I just think to myself...
I am a good person.
I try to do right.
I say my prayers.
I go to church... (not as often as I should, I admit)
I sing in the Praise Team at church.
I read my Bible.
I try to help others.
I am thankful for the things I have.
I work hard to help provide for my family.
I try to be a good mother to Ava Grace.
But... What have I done for God with the talents he has given me? What talents?
What is my talent that I can use to glorify God? I don't know...
I sing in the Praise team at church but I feel like there is still something missing...
This was just a thinking post... It helps me to type it out and look at it and FYI I love getting feedback on my posts. It makes me really happy! :-)
Right now all I can do is pray about it and ask for direction. If you have any ideas of ways I can help others more I would love to hear it. We do sponsor a family at Christmas but I still feel like that is not enough.
