Out of a joyful heart
When your heart swells with the overwhelming desire to give so much more to your family and community what do you do with that? I haven't really asked myself that question until today. Some may say act on it, that is part true but normally when your heart swells with the desire to give the desire is bigger than your energy level, your wallet or your time will allow at that very moment. Others may say pray about it; you can't go wrong with that option. I believe you should pray before you act on anything. But my main point today is a swelled heart can go in two directions. It can become a joyful heart because even though you can't fathom how you are going to do all that you want to, you are just glad to care enough to want to do so much for others. It can also become and burdened and troubled heart because you are trying to do all your heart desires in your own strength and too quickly.. I believe that when you hit points in your life where your heart is swelled with the desire to give in so many places, it's important to pray and not to try to figure out how you are going to do it all, but rather just be happy that you want to!!!! Because God is doing a work in you and you have to let Him be faithful and just to complete it until Christ returns. God's work is too big for you.
