So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable.  Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.  1 Corinthians 15:58

I was blessed with two readings this morning that spoke to me about living all out.  Enthusiasm and passion spark me to live on the edge.  When I do not hold back, when I pour out my love and my life, god knows that I live for Him.  I love this verse as it describes a woman who left nothing back too.  A woman came with an alabaster jar of very costly ointment of nard, and she broke open the jar and poured the ointment on Jesus head.  Mark 14:3 She broke open the jar… there was no dipping or gently spooning out this expensive balm… NO she broke the jar and poured it all over His head.  She knew that Jesus deserved to be treated like the king He was.  She enthusiastically gave Him what was His due.

What can I do today to honor Him?  How can I pour myself out like a libation to honor my God?  That is why these readings taken together unlock my spirit!  For nothing I do for the Lord is ever useless.  As long as I live for Him, my actions will give Him glory and achieve the purpose that He intends.  It is easy to be enthusiastic for God!  The choices become clearer and the work of my hands does not tire me when I am in His grace.  I am strong and immovable when I am doing His will.

The most important thing then is to be sure I am in His will.  Prayer and careful listening open my mind and my heart.  He whispers in my dreams and speaks to me though those I love and complete strangers when I am asking Him which way to go, He always answers.  Waiting on His direction allows me to be even more enthusiastic when I know which way He is asking me to go.

Today I enthusiastically set out to serve you, Lord!  Help me always to seek to do Your will FIRST!  Help me to rise above any distractions and be strong and immovable in Your service.
