~ YOU Are Called To Full Time Ministry ~

When someone says, “full-time ministry,” we automatically assume this refers to a person who makes their living from being in the ministry. By taking this train of thought, by default, we put everyone else in the category of NOT being in full-time ministry.

Just because you work a secular job, are a stay at home mom, in the military, or even unemployed, realize that YOU ARE IN FULL TIME MINISTRY.

The word “minister” is just a fancy word for servant, and we are all servants of the LORD.

Know that ministering to your family is an honorable vocation, as well as serving your country, or working your job, or whatever it is you are doing, as long as you approach it as a servant of the Lord, as His representative, doing it with all your heart.

Colossians 3:23 ~ And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,

How to get it right?

~decisions, decisions, decisions~

From the moment we wake up in the morning until the moment we lay our heads down at night, there is one thing we all have in common regardless our personality traits and/or inclinations. This would be that we all make decisions, from the most immediate things like; What clothes will I wear? to more complex things like, Who will I marry? We all make decisions and making decisions can be challenging.

There are many variables and challenges that come our way everyday and without God’s guidance we cannot be on the top of our game. We need His help to get it right!

Only in Him can your path be straightened and only in Him will all things work to your benefit. Never give up in your pursuit to follow His lead because His ways are higher and better than yours. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Remember, it is good to have plans, but follow His directions. When in conflict, your plans should always yield to His plan.

I would like to encourage you today with some verses from the Book of Proverbs on this topic. Please read them. From these verses I drew an acronym for the word PLANS. It is not meant to be your ABCs of life, but more as key components that should be part of your decision-making process.


P- Pray for direction.

L- Listen to counsel.

A- Always let God have the final word.

N- No need to rush. God’s timing is the right one.

S- Success should always be measured by God’s
standards and not men’s standards.
