Everything is possible for one who believes (read Mark 9:23). Perhaps you too serve in some unnoticed place, doing nothing more than ordinary deeds. Others might think that's a waste. But brothers and sisters, God Almighty wastes nothing.

God Almighty, may I be willing to be hidden and unknown today, yet ready to speak a word to those who are weary. May Your Spirit touch my words and make them Your Words that enrich and refresh others. Amen.

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (read Colossians 3:17).

Difficult circumstances may thwart even our best intentions, separating friends from each other for a season. But God Almighty is growing His church through every difficulty. We need only be faithful and leave the results to Him. God Almighty, we are so prone to be fearful when we face opposition, yet so often we want to take credit for every little success. Help us see that You are the One who blesses and builds Your Church.

The Helper, the Holy Spirit ... will teach you all things (read John 14:26). In whatever ways the Holy Spirit, the Helper, has gifted you, let Him use you for His honor. Dear God Almighty, thank You for the gifts You have given me so that I might serve the body of Jesus Christ. Help me to be faithful to use my gifts to bring You glory. Amen. You are a necessary part of the whole.

In 2008 (October), after my mother died, I went into a huge depression and abandoned God Almighty momentarily. I desperately needed change and began reading the "Bible" every day in the morning, in the evening, and at night. If it wasn't for the "Bible" planting seeds of salvation in my soul, I would still be lost today.
