My calling and ministry is vast. The more I grow in Christ, the more He expands my ministry. I fight for love. I fight for biblical womanhood and the growth of women – young and old, single and married, career-oriented and traditional. I fight for marriages. I fight for the biblical family. I fight against human trafficking and prostitution. I fight against the criminalization of minorities, specifically male. I fight for those who have been abused and victimized. I fight for the voiceless. I fight for the oppressed. I fight for the marginalized. I fight for social injustices far and wide. All for the glory of God. Who knows what else He will add to this list? Whatever it is, I’m ready!

Why would I not want to become a lawyer?! Especially if I love to write?! This has been one of my dreams for a very long time – and one of these days, it’ll be realized. One of these days, it’ll happen. Until then, I have plenty of work to do for the Kingdom! A law degree will only enhance it!

What are your gifts (Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)? What has God purposed you to do? In what ways can you invest in yourself to ensure that you have the tools necessary to impact the world for Christ? The more we love Him, the more we know Him, the more we seek Him about our life and calling, the more He will reveal His plan to us. He is the One who gives us purpose. And the more obedient we become in operating in our purpose, the more He will add to our gifts and talents. If we are faithful with little, He will bless us with much. He will continue to entrust us with more. He will continue to pour into us so that we can pour out. He blesses us with gifts and talents for His glory alone.

A stern truth about our duty as stewards of God’s gifts is found in Matthew 25:14-30, and I encourage you to read this! I will not post it here as I normally do (it is longer than most passages I add to my blogs); however, I want to make it clear that God does not honor unfaithfulness in our work. He does not honor us sitting on our gifts and talents and not using them for the advancement of the Kingdom. In fact, punishment is ensued for those who are slack in their duty for the Kingdom and for the glory of the Lord. Harsh punishment.

Remember: We only have one life to live on earth. Live it fully. Live it abundantly. Live it honestly. Live it faithfully. For Him.

Our entire lives should be a ministry to a watching world. And we are to imitate Jesus in every aspect. In service, in leadership, in sacrifice, in humility, in love.

God is love. Love is a lifestyle. Jesus lived it, and He’s still living it.

And so should we. Don’t you forget it.

With God’s Love,

Scripture Reference:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 

And He closed the book, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. And He began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Luke 4:18-21
