Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Holy Spirit, I find myself in seasons of questioning Is it worth it? Is reaching out to somebody, pursuing a ministry, staying in a church community, sticking with a low- or no-paying passion project, or even just getting out of bed just a waste of time and energy? Has any of my effort done any significant good? And then you move through someone to speak a word of encouragement. You remind me that my work is not in vain if performed in good faith, no matter how small that seed of faith may be. Thank you for rallying me forward and connecting me through the bonds of the Body of Christ to other members when I need them most. Help me remain faithful to my calling. Amen.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
