Wake up Life Junkies-
I woke up in the morning feeling fresh to death
I’m so blessed, yes yes
I went to sleep stressed, woke up refreshed
I’m so blessed, yeah yes
Water in my face and everything is in its place
Peace of mind even my grace
I’m so blessed, yes yes yes- lyrics of Jill Scott’s, So blessed!
Yes, I am blessed! And, I’m at a very calm and peaceful place in my life due to strong faith and God’s will and His mercy on me.
We are going to give our lives for something. What will it be — a career, a sport, a hobby, a spouse, fame, wealth? None of these will have lasting significance.
Service is the pathway to real significance. I’ve been in the service industry all my life, as far as, I can remember….
God wants to use us to make a difference in the world. He wants to work through us. What matters is not the duration of your life but the donation of it. Not how long you lived, but how you lived.
If you’re not involved in any service or ministry, what excuse have you been using?
- Abraham was old.
- Jacob was insecure.
- Leah was unattractive.
- Joseph was abused.
- Moses stuttered.
- Gideon was poor.
- Samson was codependent.
- Rahab was immoral.
- David had an affair and all kinds of family problems.
- Elijah was suicidal.
- Jeremiah was depressed.
- Jonah was reluctant.
- Naomi was a widow.
- John the Baptist was eccentric to say the least.
- Peter was impulsive and hot-tempered.
- Martha worried a lot.
- The Samaritan woman had several failed marriages.
- Zacchaeus was unpopular.
- Thomas had doubts.
- Paul had poor health.
- Timothy was timid.
That is quite a variety of misfits, as you and I may be. But God used each of them in his service. He’s ready to use you, too! Let’s stop making excuses.
Happy Sunday and be blessed.
