Gratitude challenge day 7... ministry...

Even though it's after 10 p.m. and I'm whipped, I wanted to post my gratitude today for Brenda's gratitude challenge.  

At the end of a very busy day, I am grateful for ministry.  Often I feel overwhelmed and under talented to do what God calls me to do.  I've been known to burn out easily, get sidetracked even more easily and complain most easily.  I've failed more often than I've ever succeeded.  And... yet... He uses me and He uses me, first and foremost, to change me... anything after that is His bonus.

I am so grateful that He has chosen to use me and I want to be usable.  When I am willing to be used by the King of Kings, I benefit.  I change because He changes me to usable to Him.

Ministry looks different day to day and season to season in my life.  I'm thankful for each way He has allowed me the privilege to be involved in Kingdom work!


  1. Ah, ministry.. It's hard for me to get started, but once I do, the rewards are so great. The more I give, the more I receive. Thank you for your post today... Continued ministry.

  2. The gift of Ministry is so precious ...

    "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
    Gal. 6:9

    Have a great week, Hedi!


Thank you for your kind words!
