One time I complained to my husband about some roadblocks in my ministry.
My husband answered me with these very enlightening words: God never promised you what kind of end result you would receive. He just wants to have an intimate relationship with you.
At first, I didn’t like what he said. Who wouldn’t want to see their sweat and effort lead to mature fruit?
But after I gave this statement more thought, I realized: what could bring more joy in this world than to deeply feel in my innermost being that I am treasured and loved by my creator, the heavenly Father, the one who created everything under heaven and earth?!
This conversation changed my entire thought process about working for the kingdom.
I’m having a more joyful attitude.
The writing, reading, painting and creating process doesn’t seem like work anymore. The result is not that important to me anymore either.
It’s the journey that makes everything worthwhile. And I truly learned to enjoy the process of creating and expressing myself!
So friends, Pay attention to what you pray for.
God won’t grant your every wish. But there is one wish He will for sure make happen: your spiritual growth.
In the end, all our Father ever wanted was a relationship with you. And there is nothing that will bring you more joy than to have a close relationship with Him.
