Thanksgiving Countdown ChallengeT(hanksgiving) -2 Devotion
Thanks for Choosing Me
The women in my church host a Holiday boutique every year. I am responsible for finding the vendors for the event. I send emails, post on social media and other sites, send contracts, assign spaces, follow-up and more. Believe me, as it gets closer to the boutique, I am praying constantly for strength. I am sorry to say I am rarely giving thanks that Jesus considers me trustworthy enough to give me this task.
As I consider it, this is rather sad. Jesus chose me for this task because I have a special set of gifts and talents that makes me the perfect person for the job. sometimes we don’t feel very thankful that Jesus has called us to serve. Yet we must consider the fact that He could have called any number of other people to service but He chose US! He chose YOU!
Instead of complaining about all the work that must be done to prepare for Thanksgiving or to get ready for Christmas, we each need to take a moment to ask Jesus to give us the strength we need to fulfill the tasks He has called us to perform and to thank Him for trusting us enough to call us into service.
