“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9
‘I do not pray for success. I ask for faithfulness.’ ~ Mother Theresa
“You need to be finding your satisfaction in being faithful instead of successful,” my mom’s wisdom rang in my ears. If the numbers don’t go up on my Instagram – I will continue to be faithful. If no-one praises my devotionals – I will continue to be faithful. If the response to my heart is silence- I will continue to be faithful. If the paycheck doesn’t reflect my hard-work-I will continue to be faithful. If no-one notices: my hard-work, my achievements, my heart, my life, my beauty, my parenting, my kids, my DESIRE to serve…I will continue to be faithful. Cause in the end, it’s HE who called me to it. Can I find enough courage to serve and be motivated by an audience of ONE? If our motivation is anything but him, we will always feel unsatisfied. How do you encourage your heart in the UNSEEN?
