What am I supposed to be doing?

Where does God want me to be?
What am I supposed to be doing?
Do you ever wonder where you are supposed to be serving, or what ministry you should be fulfilling?
Why do others know their place in the church, but I don't?

Other people seem to be so gifted, and they are serving exactly where they belong!!
I don't have talents, or gifts useful for the kingdom!
How can I be of use to the Lord?

Do you go through dry spells, when it's difficult to focus on Scripture, or even pray effectively?
You try to be still, and hear from God.....but it's just not happening!!
There seems to be clamour interfering with your devotional time.

Is there a stumbling block in the way?
Unconfessed sin? has the world taken hold of your mind, will and emotions (soul)?
Are you in need of a priority check?


Sit down, and get things right with God. 
Clean house, and you will be surprised how much more focused you will be while fellowshipping with Him!
You will be able to see more clearly where you are as far as His plan for your life.

We aren't all meant to serve in major ministries in the church....up front....preacher, teacher, music, administrator, etc.
Sometimes the most important job is the one "teaching" your very own children the basics: how to pray, who Jesus is, that He loves them, and died for them.
Maybe it's being that example of Christ for others.
How about walking in Love?

My youngest daughter and I discussed this just the other day.
By the middle of the afternoon she realized that praying with her six year old little girl was exactly where God needs her to be!!
Melissa(my daughter) called me and said, Olivia is going to be a prayer warrior!!!
I said....."and you wondered where God needed you to be".....

Sometimes the last place we would think...... ends up being the first, and most important place/job we need to be working in.
We need to stay focused, listen, and follow where He leads us.
I trust you had a Blessed Easter.
Happy Spring to you!
In His Love.

  2. So well said, Debbie! I think it's the little things we can do that make a big difference in our lives and the lives of others. Being kind, smiling to a stranger, helping someone who may be struggling. So many ways we can shine our light:) PS: love your shell pics!!!

  6. Simple truth, and so profound. God doesn't need everyone to be a Chief, but he does need everyone to be his followers.

  8. I just found your blog, after doing a Google search for 'doily quilt', whereupon I found this post of yours:

    It's so lovely. I hope to make something similar one of these days.

    I've read my way through a good many of your posts. I'm so sorry about the loss of your niece. We learned last year that my nephew had colon cancer. He's been through a lot in the last few months, but seems to be in remission for now.

    Thank you for your lovely pictures, and your writings. It's always a blessing to find one of 'like, precious faith'.
