First Love

I’m feeling convicted this morning. The Holy Spirit is reminding me of what He called me to do and I have neglected. Twice this morning, while reading the Bible, He highlighted certain passages. There is no guilt, no condemnation just a longing and a repentance.

As I reflect on why I neglected what He called me to do, I can point to two things.

Frustration – The feeling I wasn’t making a significant impact. Being overwhelmed by the greatness of the problem.

Busyness – So many things demand our attention. The enemy sends fires that need putting out to draw us from our purpose. I got distracted.

What has God given you to do and you have neglected? What dream have you put on the back burner because of frustration, busyness, or because others did not support your dream? God is calling you back today to your first love. Back to child like dreams where the sky is the limit. The dream is not too big.

I’m committed to go back to my roots, back to the calling God has on my life. He has called me to carry His love to the poor, the disenfranchised, the hurting.

What has he called you to do?

“All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬
