WHEN YOUR CALLING HEALS!
Earlier in the week, I wrote a blog called, When Your Calling Hurts. This is the sequel to that blog. There have been many times that I was just not “up to” ministering, whether it be teaching, counseling, or mentoring. I can specifically remember times where I cried all the way to a class, session or appointment because of things I was going through in my own life.
Everything in me wanted to cancel those responsibilities. BUT, when I taught the class or met with the lady, I walked away being strengthened myself.
Why is that? I finally figured it out! It was in those times that I spoke words of encouragement or truth to others that those same words encouraged and strengthened me!
God allowed the times when I was the weakest and had to depend on Him completely to be the very thing that was healing me. I have no doubt that as God was using me to help them that He was using them to heal me!
I’ll be forever grateful for those times.
My challenge to you is when you find yourself discouraged and down in the dumps to go serve someone else. You may find the very healing you need in the healing you provide for someone else!
