On Volunteering, it’s inherent blessing

I realize this morning that working for the Lord is so much easier than attending to the responsibilities I accumulate in the world.  Load on Bridge

Worldly engagements require that I operate along lines to meet peoples expectations.  Those can be really difficult to accomplish.  Unmet expectations lead to bitterness, anger and resentments — and that’s a two way street.

Godly engagements require that I operate along lines meeting God’s expectations.

“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Mt. 11:30

If I show up as a volunteer.  I’ve done my part.  God does the rest actually.

If I show up full of anxiety, and plans, worries and agendas that I want to accomplish, those are my choosing, they are my burden.  God didn’t ask me to carry them.
