I was recently with my two sisters. We like being together! Grateful that we are all women of God in ministry. Married to men in ministry. Anyway …. We stayed together, the three of us, in a hotel room. I was getting dressed and started putting the bathroom back together and noticed something that I am just used to and never think about as something special. The three of us serve one another completely. We were in a hotel room together. If any one of us entered the restroom at any moment it never looked like (or smelled like!) anyone had been in the rest room. I mean the hand soap looked unused, there was no splashed water, no stained towel, no disorder on the bathroom counter, no empty toilet paper holder, no absent hand towel … the three of us just love to serve one another.
Made me think about God in a whole new way. When we think about God being more than able – do we take the time to understand that there is nothing too hard for God includes small things?? Do we take that time to remember that we, His people, are supposed to be living lives that reflect Him … which means there should be nothing too hard for us??
When I thought about His love for us, and all that He does to make sure we feel His love for us; I wondered if we do the same thing for one another. Oh, the recent weather issues in Houston have opened my eyes once again to so much about our service and our disservice to one another. Making sure that people have what they need – especially things that we can tell everyone about – moves us to do things … but what about simple things? Are we willing to just sit and talk to someone? Are we willing to open the door for someone behind or in front of you? Cook some cookies for a neighbor? Take garbage bins out/in for people? Sweep driveways? Give your talents away for the service of another? Harvest someone’s garden? Advertise a friend’s work/business so that they have more customers? AND … are you willing to do any of this and leave it just between you and the person you have served?
Nothing at all is too hard for God! Not small things … not huge things … nothing is too hard!!! Let’s pray that it will be the same for all of us as His children. Serve your brothers/sisters in Christ in any way that is needed. Serve all people around you in any way that is needed. Nothing is too low for you to do AND nothing is too high for you to do because you are His! He is the God of every person on the earth and we, His children, are to be finding ways to serve them in every single way! Is there anything too hard?!?!
