Unemployed!God has given us all talents some get more than others.I Love working with children my 18 month old grandaughter already knows what praying means if she doesn`t get what she wants she folds her little hands and prays.Prayer is asking but now to lead her in the direction to pray to our God.
My grandaughter already reads 15 words bible being one of them.I ask God for wisdom in the help of training her for his honor and glory.Anyone can go through the motions and look good on the inside but what is in their heart is what matters.If God has given me the gift of loving little children I dont want to waste the talent I want to invest it.
As I was reading in 1 Chronicles chapter 9 this morning I noticed there was very able men for the work of the service of the house of God.The problem is usually men are not willing.
Our Pastor preached a good sermon Sunday on asking God to touch us that we may touch others.
Ezra 7:27-28 (King James Version)
“Blessed be the LORD God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king’s heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem: And hath extended mercy unto me before the king, and his counsellors, and before all the king’s mighty princes. And I was strengthened as the hand of the LORD my God was upon me, and I gathered together out of Israel chief men to go up with me.”
I Would Rather Be a Doorkeeper in the House of God
We don`t have any idea our impact on lives around us.
As A childacre owner for many years I found the first impression means everything.If we can greet people at our church with love that comes from above we will draw men.I believe when Jesus said follow me I will make you fishers of men also includes our actions at church and everywhere.Unemployed in God`s work is a whole lot worse than unemployed in this world that usually is labor
