It Doesn't Matter

It doesn’t matter if no one hears what you say. 
If God said say it, then say it anyway.

It doesn’t matter if no one reads what you write.
If God said write it, then write it anyway.

It doesn’t matter if no one appreciates what you fashion with clay, or paint, or fabric, or metal, or paper.
If God said fashion it, then fashion it anyway.

It doesn’t matter if no one cares that you sacrifice your time, talent, or treasure.
If God said sacrifice it, then sacrifice it anyway.

It is not our kingdom we build. It is His.
It is not our plan we work. It is His.

He is the Architect. We are the laborers –
Privileged to work whenever, wherever, and however
He pleases.

Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet . . . (Hebrews 12:12-13)

I really like this post. All we need to do each day is put one foot in front of the other, following the path He leads us on. We don't need to know the why's, He provides the wherefore's. What we do know is our final destination. Just be faithful to Him and let every day be an ongoing act of trust in Him. It's not easy, but developing this habit brings peace of heart.

I think the key is an ongoing act of trust we develop over time, so long as we persevere in making ourselves trust Him. Hard, yes. Possible? Yes.
