Delighting In Pleasing Him

Colossians 3:23“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;”

As a Christian you would think this is just a natural reaction to everything we face in this life. We have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, so certainly everything we do would be done heartily for the Lord. And while many times we do things for the Lord, there are times I find myself trying to please others, and wondering what they think of me.

There are times when I do something and when I walk away I realize that it was for glory of men and not for God. This is when I have to ask the a Lord for forgiveness and to help me in this area of my life.

I have a hard time with self confidence and although others tell me that I do something well, I tend to think differently.

It is not an easy thing to learn, but I do find that when I do it for the Lord, I am pleased myself.

When you grasp this verse it is freeing. God gives us exactly what we need when we need it. I am in a place where doing it for the Lord is my goal for everything that I do. From taking care of my children’s needs, to schooling them, to being the help meet that my husband needs and being who I need to be.

If I do it for the Lord and know that the Lord is pleased with me, then I will be pleased with myself and my family will be happy as well.
