I feel awkward writing this post, but at the same time I feel like I need to. Lately I’ve felt like something is missing. At first I thought that maybe it was just because D’s been on nights and we haven’t been able to spend as much time together, but I don’t think that that’s it.
I’ve been praying the last few months that God might show me the path that He wants me to follow, asking that He would guide me. And then yesterday at church, it hit me. I need to find a way to serve! The sermon yesterday was on 1 Cor 12:12-26, and how everyone has a spiritual gift and even though it may not look like someone else’s gift it doesn’t mean that its not an important part of God’s plan. Pastor mentioned that some people have gifts that others don’t and they shouldn’t be afraid to use them. *Lightning bolt!!*
As soon as the Pastor said that once you use your gift you be so much happier, it dawned on me what I needed to do for myself. I miss helping people. Don’t get me wrong, I love my new job and I know that by doing it I am helping people indirectly everyday. But it’s not the same. I miss spending Saturday mornings at the domestic violence shelter helping the residents and working the emergency hotline. I miss the feeling of making other people’s day even just a little bit better.
So I’ve decided to find something to do, some way to serve again. I’ll keep you posted on what I find, and how it goes.
