1500…

1500… affirmation of His call to write these posts six days a week…

Today… the fifteen-hundredth post…
I remember the one-thousandth
I couldn’t believe it…
wondered how many more could there be…

Even this evening… I thought there were no words to write…
and even though I’d been watching the number rise…
I’d forgotten today… was the day…

1500… I don’t persevere this long in my flesh…
only by His grace… His Spirit… His inspiration… His strength…
do I continue on… and… on… without feeling overwhelmed…

I think of His call… to let Him teach… lead…

“… Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:29-20 ESV
When we do what He calls us to…
when we do it with Him…
it gets done… without stress… without burnout…
So if you find yourself burned out in ministry…
maybe you’re not serving with Him…
or maybe you’re doing what you want to do…
and not what He’s called you… created you… to do…
I encourage you today…
find what He’s calling you to do…
know His joy…
know His peace…
know His rest…
even in the work…
daily… daily… work…
Amen…
[Note… with each milestone… 1000… 1500… I wonder just how much longer this will continue… with new ministry popping up… I wonder just how far I can stretch… but as long as He calls… presses… provides words to write here… I will… but only by His grace…]
