Learn To Take Initiative.

Written in 2014

There is so much work that needs to be done in the church but, first the work needs to be done within us.

This blog is for Believers who serve within a ministry capacity in the Church.

We must learn to take initiative in the small things; because at times the small things have a big impact but be sure to take initiative with the right motives. Do not act if you are looking for the applause, the glory, and the praise. Remember that ministry is not about you but about God, sacrificing your needs and placing the needs of others first, and sharing the Gospel.

How exactly can I take initiative in the small things?

Keeping your church clean is one practical way.

Picking up a soda can off the floor, changing the trash bag whenever it is full, replacing the toilet paper in the restroom whenever it runs out, etc. Such action may be trivial in someone’s eyes; however, it has a big impact on the church. Not every church has a paid janitor, but they have people who sacrifice their time and volunteer to clean the church, so your part in cleaning is important. A clean church is more welcoming. Look at it from a spiritual perspective, as a follower of Christ, if the inside of your personal life look unorganized and unclean would you leave it the way it is? No, because you know God can’t dwell in an unclean place; He is too Holy. So, treat your church as you would treat yourself, by keeping it clean, and organized. The same concept applies to your own personal home.

I bet many of you think cleaning is not part of a ministry; but you are wrong as it is a part of ministry. It is the same amount of work as the Pastor does at the altar. Again, look at it from a spiritual perspective. Imagine the restroom as the church. Most people don’t want to clean a bathroom because it is perceived as the dirtiest room, however the janitor will take the time to clean it as he understands it is part of his role. Part of a Pastor/Janitor’s job in the church/restroom is for him is to preach/clean until he leaves it spotless and unfortunately, he can’t reach to clean every spot to be honest. Some stains are stubborn and hard to clean, but as janitor/ Pastor they understand they can only do so much to their best of their abilities.

If you are thinking, well what will I even gain if I do take imitative in the small things by cleaning? Probably nothing, but I believe it will truly humble you.

James 4:10 NLT “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor”.

So again, take the initiative in the small thing, but not for the honor, but to please God. 

Stay Golden.

Hello my lovely readers, I guess I should do a quick bio about me. Well, for one I am not your average woman I make living Holy look fun. Yes! I am a believer but, I AM NOT PERFECT nor do I pretend to be. I love my city Kissimmee, Florida was raised here all my life I rep it like I do with my nationality, Haitian-American. Don't like long walks on the beach because Florida is too hot and the birds here are mean, but, I enjoy watching the sunrise on my rooftop. My two favorite things that God created are the Moon and Stars, notice I didn't say humans? I am totally kidding, my love for people is deeper than my dimples. I have many passions one of them is doing missionary work, I enjoy the company of people from different cultures; I also admire photographing nature places I've traveled too and priceless moments. On July 28, 1992 was the best day that ever happens to my mother that is why she named me after her, Myriam Norgaisse. Thanks mother now I have to live the rest of my life getting our mail mixed up. Well, that was somewhat of a short bio. Enjoy my blog & more.
