I am a people person. It’s just the way God made me. Growing up, I was always in trouble in class for talking and no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t stop. Now I know why: It’s how God made me. I attend a very large church and struggled to find a place to connect. I am not a Bible scholar, so teaching Sunday School wasn’t a great fit. I’m a bit too scatter-brained to teach children. But, I can serve those who serve. That is my life’s mission. We have hundreds of people each week who sacrifice their time and energy to serve in all sorts of ministries. I decided it was time to serve them. Each Sunday morning, I get up super early to drive to church so I can set out simple breakfast items and coffee for those who will serving. Some of these wonderful people will be at the church from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm, so around noon, I’ll set out snacks and soft drinks. As the volunteers make their way to the room, I greet them with a big smile and thank them for their service. Sometimes folks want to talk for a few minutes, sometimes they need a bit of prayer, sometimes they need a word of encouragement. I see myself as the church’s cheerleader, cheering the team on to victory in Jesus each week. I know it may seem small and insignificant, and maybe it is. But I believe the work I am doing matters. It matters to the volunteers who are hungry, thirsty, and in need of a smile. It think it matters to the Lord as I work for His glory.
