“I needed to spend more time focusing on my relationship with God and not what I was doing for Him. What I was doing was becoming more important than being in relationship with Him….” (full original post)
I may no longer be on staff at a church, but that doesn’t mean that fighting my addiction to doing for God is over. I have to remind myself often that He doesn’t need me but rather that He blesses me with the opportunity to join Him in the work He’s already started. That ultimately it’s about living in relationship & working with Him, not for Him.
The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. – Acts 17:24-25
