I heard someone say
people want to help people, until they help people.
Why? Because it’s hard work, it takes time, money, gas, and a very good listening ear. Not many people are able to keep their peace and joy after hearing someone else’s bad situations.
This is when you have to remember why you do it? Why do you want to help? Why are you in ministry? Is there a real passion and genuine love in you for your people, generation, God? This will answer your deepest concerns and expose your true intentions of life.
There has to be a deeper purpose in you then to be recognized, because most times you won’t be. There has to be a greater sense of destiny and foresee the future, because you might not see immediate results. Lastly, you have to know who you serve, because some might not reciprocate back nor can they. Your reward will come, but not from where you expect it.
Stay on track, because as you are helping others, you might be going trough storms, bad financial situations, or relationships gone wrong. You are not alone, you will rise, and you will finish strong, so I leave you with a scripture that always keeps me on track.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Gal. 6:9 NKJV
