Just Do It

  • 4 May 2019

Back in January, I was visiting my aunt, and we were talking about how easy it is to not reach out to others because you don’t know what to say and you don’t want to look stupid. I find that it doesn’t take much to paralyze me in regards to helping others if I think too much about it. I worry that I’ll do something wrong or they won’t appreciate my attempt. My aunt encouraged me to not be afraid to do even little things since they may mean more than I realize. I expect this will continue to be a process but there is wisdom in her words, and I want to pass that on to you.

Colossians 3:23 tells us, “Whatever you do in word or deed, do it heartily as to the Lord and not unto men.” I think this is what we lose sight of. This actually hit me years ago when I was thinking way too much about my actions that I let opportunities pass me by. I finally realized that, if my focus is on God and my desire is to please Him, I don’t need to worry so much about what others think.

I expect this is going to be a long process of learning this lesson but it is one I pray to achieve, and I would like to encourage you to as well. Don’t let insecurity keep you from being a blessing to others. Pray for a sensitivity to the Spirit, a heart of humility, and a willingness to serve. I anticipate that God will answer those prayers, and people will be drawn closer to the Lord through our obedience.
