This is a note I wrote last August which I published on Facebook. I decided I would share it here, as it is something that has become increasingly important to me lately. I have made some small edits to the note.
“Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!” Ps. 97:11-12
I am a relatively young person, and there are many who lived more life than I have, but in my 27 years of life, there has been no greater times of joy than when I have been in the service of people, and in the worship of Almighty God. I imagine this is the case for many others. My goal as I continue to be immersed in a community in which I have the opportunity to learn, serve and worship with people from all walks of life, is for my life to be a blessing to those around me.
Just about all who read this post are in different situations. Some spend your time working to pay the bills, the daily routine becomes boring, and sometimes there seems to be no point. Some wish for a more boring life, to slow down and be able to take time to reflect. Regardless of your situation, there is nothing stopping you from serving people and worshipping our God.
This is what we were created for.
