Stop Whining... Start Doing...

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit with you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26

One of my greatest desires is to do something spectacular.. Something that will make the difference in another person's life.... Something so great that it could only be from God... Tonight my husband and I were talking... I was talking about the disappointment I felt with our church.. with our women ministry group... I was disappointed that people (including myself) don't seem fired up to go out there in our own mission field.. Yes, overseas missions is something I want to do one day... But today - there is so much that can be done here... now.... today!

Last year we talked about serving others and this year we tried to follow through - we had a very low attendance... It's easy to say we'll go out and serve the Lord but it's hard to go out and do it.... As I was whining about my disappointment - Dusty, the husband asked me why don't I just do something... Get a program - an event started.. Get people involved.... Basically he said stop whining and start doing.... How about that mirror in the face???

Now I wonder what can I do? I think I need to let God tell me... It's funny when I wait on Him - He always answers.... Things are about to change... I feel it... God has given me a new heart... a new purpose... I was just too busy complaining about others not telling me what to do.... I was too concerned what others were doing and not doing... But God has shown in His Word that He uses small people... small groups... and sometimes only one individual to do His Mighty Work.... I say God use me.... however You choose.....

You're right. It is not about the number but even one with a willing heart to do things for the Lord will make a big difference. God bless and may He guide you.
