Sometimes we incorrectly assume that all people will enjoy and accept recognition. During our service honoring veterans, I know of at least five men in the audience who served, but could not muster the nerve to come before the gathering to be recognized. Please keep this in mind and go out of your way to thank any veteran you come in contact with.
In that same mindset, I was reminded of something else that night. I am at peace at Open Door Mission. I am comfortable with all of the things that I do and even with the new tasks assigned to me. It was not always this way, though. Not too long ago, I did struggle with anxiety related to my work at the Mission, but the Lord brought peace.
Having come out of that anxiety, I always need to remember to seek out those who are not at ease, and to encourage and build bridges for others. I should never assume my feeling are yours.
Thank you all for serving our true Commander and Chief (God our Father, Lord Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit) and those He loves in a manner that brings a smile to His face and grows His kingdom.
To be continue tomorrow, 11/17.
