I am finding that this works. Anytime that I am trying to do something for my own benefit, I have to struggle through. If I am doing it because I feel called by God, to serve someone else, to spread the gospel, to show love to another, to bring joy–any of those and it totally goes well. And usually better things come from it. God is good like that.
He really does have a plan for us, and it is a plan that will prosper us in His ways. Not necessarily in Earthly ways–there is the difference. And really, He doesn’t want us to stray from that plan–so none of that stuff works out. See?
The more I blog and create art for God, the more opportunities He throws my way. The more involved I am in activities that pull me away from Him–the more annoying they get.
How about you? Do you notice this in your life?
