Do not ‘work’ at pleasing others, for they will not satisfy your life. For just when you think you’ve accomplished their will, it will change–for emotions reign.
“Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10
Look to Me, for I AM pleased at your glance.
You don’t have to perform for Me; for I know you and, in you, I AM pleased. Rather, work at the task pressing on your heart and I will work those around you, to please you, to do what I’ve called you to do.
Do not be afraid of the goal–just begin.
Those who allow the goal to overwhelm, never start. Convinced in their heart that they can’t do what I ask, they stop listening and turn away. Fear of failure has taken root in their heart.
I didn’t ask you to know how; I ask you to be willing.
From the start you may only know a small part.
The plan is made perfect by My will. For I will impart My Wisdom to your heart, and knowledge to fulfill My will.
Do you question still?
Come along with Me. I will help you to see the answers to all that you ask.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
I AM unchanging, but ever-arranging your life to line up with Mine. As you ‘see’ Me, that is the key, that unlocks each door that you grasp.
Open the door!
“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;
yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and equity, every good path;
for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you; understanding will guard you; delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech–” Proverbs 2:1-12
“Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24
I think I just did that wrong! 🙂
I don’t know it looks kind of cute that way :}
