During moments in my life, my service to God has meant helping to start a crisis pregnancy center, mentoring teenage moms, leading Bible studies, going on mission trips, caring for my elderly grandmother and adopting children. But those are just an outpouring of God in me, of my heart understanding His.
God didn't give me a list of marching orders to check off. Instead, I've dug into His Word and have grown in my relationship with Him. As I've understood His heart, I've served Him in the ways He's brought before me, for His glory. It's saying yes to what's on His heart as He reveals it to me.
What I do comes out of who I am as a child of God.
Who I am comes out of where my heart is.
Where my heart is depends on how lined up I am with where God's heart is.
I discover God's heart when I read His Word, surround myself with His fellow servants and love and serve those around me who need His love and grace.
Where does this leave me? I cannot be proud of the things I do—of being a mom or an author or a mentor. Instead, it leaves me humble that God has chosen to love and serve through me. Instead, it continually takes me to my knees as I pray and ask Jesus to line up my heart with His.
What is God's will for your life? You'll discover the answer by first asking, "What is God's will?" and then by connecting with Him—in His Word, through prayer and through fellowship with other believers. It's only then that you'll follow His will in what He wants you to do and who He wants you to be today.
