When God is calling us to increase in our capacity to serve His body, there will be times when we feel as if we are being stretched in every direction.
Here are some great thoughts on stretching by Pastor Jody Andrews in our staff devotional time this morning.
S– Stay Focused. Don’t allow yourself to become distracted from the thing God is preparing you for.
T– Trying never gets the job done. We must determine in our hearts to press on toward the goals set before us.
R– Random accomplishments do not produce sustained success. Success is proven with consistent effort.
E– Easy doesn’t equal “shortcut.” Difficult doesn’t equal “door shut.” Don’t be fooled by your circumstances.
T– Teachable people exceed their teacher. Jesus said “You shall do these things and greater.”
C– Character matters. Your talents may get you on the stage, but only your character will keep you there.
H– How is your serve? We must continually teach ourselves to serve others.
Allow God to STRETCH you today into the man or woman he has created you to be.
