So for the majority part of my adulthood I have always had a jammed packed life. I worked full time, went to school, and ran after the little child of mine. Lol
Since the day that I accepted God I began to feel the want of serving at my church. The only problems I was facing was time and selecting a ministry to serve in. So this year things changed for me in order for me to finally do this.
I got invited to go see a great Christian women speaker. In this gathering she mentioned something that helped me finally sign up. She said “you find your purpose when you serve”. I had been having an identity issue and lost my sense of purpose. So that following weekend at church I signed up for the role that made me feel the most uncomfortable… that was serving for the welcome team and greeting at the entrance.
I didn’t see myself as a social person and wasn’t too fond of shaking other people’s hand but I knew this was what I needed to do. To my surprise, on my first day, I had fun. I enjoyed greeting at the door and finally seeing most of the faces I never saw or interacted with. I enjoyed it so much that I did it the following weekend, and the weekend after that, and the one after that one. I have been serving now for a total of three months.
I also decided to sign up to serve at the office as an admin. I have been doing that for two months now. I’ve gotten to meet so many great people that I know I will keep in my life forever.
So dear friend, you may not know what your talent or skill is. It might be the very thing you fear to do most. Push yourself by asking God to lead you. He will direct you in the perfect ministry to serve in. But rest assure that you have a purpose and that God created you for a reason. If you still haven’t found that purpose I urge you to go serve and I promise you that you will discover it.
