If you could design a ministry what would it look like? Would it be feeding the hungry? Would you provide water purification? Would you distribute clothing? Give out medications? Work at a hospital? Organize events to raise money? Clean-up after a natural disaster? Build homes or shelters? Some of these ministries probably sound alright, some maybe even good, others horrible.

Now, think of a ministry that would accomplish what Frederick Buechner describes as "your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet(ing)." I truly believe God calls us to what we enjoy. Ministry that leaves you feeling miserable is wrong and ineffective. So find what you enjoy and do it for the glory of God.

You are so right. God does give us joy for what He calls us to do. Well said. Grammie
