Feeling Accomplished

Do you ever get that feeling that you just don't know what you are supposed to do with yourself? What is my purpose in this life? Well, I am one of those people who think this ALOT. I sometimes wonder what am I really here for. I can't just go and save the world like I would like to, and I cant travel to other countries like I would love to. I am shy and introverted, so talking to other people is almost next to impossible. But deep down I know that I am supposed to be witnessing to others who don't know the love of Jesus Christ. Am I a sinner if I don't do this? No, I am not. God knows my abilities and what I can and cant do. He also knows where I am and where I am not comfortable. I truly believe that God is a gentleman and He wouldn't force me into a place that I am not totally comfortable. So instead of going door to door, He brings the people to me.

If I am at the park with the kids, I begin a conversation about kids. This usually leads up to more personal talk and then the big question, "Do you go to church anywhere around here?" That tends to be my opening line. I try to feel out the person first, see what their mood and demeanor is, see what their
personality is like. I don't want to go in guns blazing an ruin my opportunity. And there are days I don't say anything, just sit in deep thought and prayer for that person.

If I am at the grocery store, honestly most times I am in there to get my stuff and GO!! I rarely talk to anyone while I am in there. That partially is due to the fact that the kids are non-stop on my nerves and I will not push them, or me, past the patience limit. God, I hope, understands this.

Whether I truly believe this or not, I tell myself that in my own quiet way, God is using me. I may not be out with my Bible and quoting scriptures throughout every conversation, but I am trying to be a friend to someone who needs it. Or give a loving smile to someone who looks sad, or saying a silent prayer for that person who seems a little stressed out. I know that even though there are days I feel useless, I am being used. Even if it is at home tending to my kids and husband...and all that gets me feeling accomplished!
