You are giving so much of yourself to others. To your family, friends, co-workers and co-laborers. I see the joy and delight in your face as you serve. You know that this is what God called you to do.
Most days you serve with such great joy in your heart for the privilege of sharing Christ with others. But deep down inside I also see the moments of discouragement and heart break.
I see your hurt. I know you have been misunderstood and others have taken advantage of your kindness. While I know that you do not do what you do for others, but for God, still you hurt. You grow weary and your heart breaks as yet another person is unkind as they speak to you while you were trying to help them.
There have been those who spread gossip and are critical of you and what you are doing. There have been hurtful words spoken instead of words of thankfulness. You have been forgotten, overlooked and made to feel invisible. I get it. I have been there too. We all have.
But this is what I want you to know deep down in your heart. God sees you dear one. He sees you when you sit down and rise up. He sees you at work and at rest. He knows your thoughts, your heart break and your hurts. You, dear sister, are never out of His presence. He is so delighted in you. Not for what you do for and through Him but because you are YOU! He has loved you from before the foundations of the earth were ever even created. Yes! Even then He was delighted in you!
My prayer for you today is that you might see Jesus in all that you do. I pray that in your loneliness you will feel the presence of His Spirit. In your weariness you will feel His strength. I pray that if others are tearing you down that you will feel the overpowering presence of His Spirit lifting you high. I pray that no matter where you are today, no matter what is said about you, or to you that you would be able to rise above it all and soar on the wings of His Spirit who holds you.
Oh dear sister I know how hard this life can be. I know how weary we can become in doing good but don't give up. Don't let the things of this world overwhelm you. Press on to know God. Press on knowing He walks with you and sees you.
Run into His presence, He sees you no matter where you are today.
