It is Good to do Good


I am finding that most of my pleasure comes from helping someone else. Even in my most trying times, I am compelled to help others in whatever situations they find themselves. I recently took a part-time job in an area totally unfamiliar to me but it is in the area of helps. I find myself helping total strangers and often sharing unrelated info with them. It is pleasing when they return and say "That was really a help."

A long time ago, the Lord revealed this as my gift. I know things and I don't know how I know them but I do. Not in a "That's so Raven" way (if you have children, you know what I am talking about) but the revelation of how to accomplish something comes quite easily to me. This is not a braggadocious statement but a true revelation that God uses us in different ways. I am not a singer by some peoples standards, I think I am; I am not a writer, a teacher, a friend, intellegent, beautiful, etc. But by the Lord's standard I am everything that He made me to be.

He made me a helper. I am not ashamed and I use this gift to its fullest. However, I have learned that sometimes it is to my hurt. But nevertheless, it is not my gift to give but God's to use. In our current Bible Study series, our pastor is teaching about the Prayer of Jesus. (Great study by the way.) Jesus knew the hurt and betrayal coming His way but He continued on the destination to His destiny. I have to be like Jesus, even when I don't know, I know that all things are working for my good.

I does me good to do good. To help others, to show love, to be misunderstood and still understand, to be depreciated to be appreciated, to walk in faith with my heels on but to walk tall and assured that the Lord has my back (and feet :))). Sometimes I do get weary in my well doing but God is the rewarder and looking to the hills, I see a greater reward in store. Continue to do good, even to those who may not fully appreciate it.

I am truly excited about the events that will be unfolding for me in the near future. What are they? I don't know yet but I know that I know He has a plan for me. He is orchestrating some things that will help me to fulfill my passion, mission and reach my destiny. To God Be the Glory! All I can say is I am still "Dreaming" and you should too.

Keep Walking,
