First and foremost, put God in the center of your life – wife, children, family members, friends, ministry, hobbies, vacation, and etc. Enthrone Christ as the center of your life!
It is essential to constantly remember that your true identity is in Christ. In the eyes of God, you and I are His beloved child. This is who you are. Don’t ever forget that you are His beloved!
In all that you do, not only your ministry, do it for the glory of God. View your whole life as an adventure with God. It is exciting and at times frightening. In this journey of ups and downs, embrace it fully as an adventure with God. Accept and thank God for whatever happen, especially for the troubles, struggles and even failures that come your ways.
I often asked God to show me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown. But, I have learned and still learning to go out into the darkness and put my hand into the hand of God for this is better than light and safer than a known way.
May this be your prayer as it is for me – asking God to tune your heart continually to sing of His grace.
