Believe in What You’re Doing

encouragementBelieve in what you’re doing.

Today, in all the work of your hands, believe it is also a work of heart. Because no matter what you do, you are touching hearts today.

To touch someone’s heart, yours has to be in the right place.

What’s the right place? Held fast in Him.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1 NIV

Trust that He’s got this.

It doesn’t fall on your shoulders. Line yourself with Him and trust that He will do the REAL work… you just plant the seeds.

When you don’t see those heart results in the moment,

He’s taking care of it for you.

But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8  NIV

Hope! Hope in Him.

Heap Hope on others. When you just aren’t feelin’ it, when you’re strugglin’ to believe, look for someone to bring hope to.

How? Serve. When you serve others you give hope.

When you give hope, you start to feel it again too.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:11-12 NIV

And if you’re still stuck – really, really, stuck – ask for prayer.

Cause sometimes, that’s all it takes.

Believe.

Trust.

Hope.

Not in yourself… But in Him.

Give yourself grace and sprinkle it on those around you. Cause who couldn’t use some extra grace today?

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:5 NIV
