What can I do for the LORD? Proverb of the Day.

What can I do for the LORD?
Have you ever wondered what you can do for the LORD?  As I've experienced with life after cancer, this question is my heart question.

I want 
to serve Him.
to minister to others.
to bless others.
to do this face to face. 

Of course, I try to be available to minister to my husband, children, grandchildren, family and friends. But I want to make a difference in my community as well. However, I now realize that He has other plans for me.

I'm definitely an extrovert.  He has a work to accomplish in me that requires an introvert lifestyle. Of this I'm sure.  

Have you ever been in a similar experience in your own walk?  I'd love to hear about it!
One of my pastors once told a story addressing this very topic.

           One day a pastor went to visit one of his elderly parishioners.  She was washing dishes and weeping.  When he asked what was wrong, she confessed that she felt she hadn't accomplished anything for the LORD.  The pastor then asked how her children were doing.  One was a pastor, another a missionary and yet anther was involved in ministry in their local church.  The pastor gently pointed how much she had indeed accomplished in the LORD. Sometimes, we are blind to the work the LORD is achieving in our lives and how He works through us to bless others.  Perhaps this very blindness is vital to keep us humble and leaning on Him and His everlasting arms.  

I realize all I simply need to do is follow His leading, trusting Him.
Proverb of the Day.
