You Can Do It All!

You can do it all….just not all at once.

Last Sunday I looked over the group of over 40 Momentum Kids volunteers who were attending our first training meeting and lunch for 2011 and thought, I wish I could send them all a letter telling them personally how much it means to me that they give so freely of their time and their talents.  But I just don’t have the time.

But that’s not exactly true.  I don’t have the time to sit down and do it all at once.  I don’t even have the time, to do it all in one week.  But I probably could find the time, to do it all in one month.  If I wrote 2 cards a day, I could contact everyone personally this month.  What an impact that could have on our volunteers if I made the time to do that!

How many times do I think of things that I would love to do for my children’s ministry that I don’t follow through with, because the task is just too large to complete at one time.  How many times do I settle for doing things well, when, I could, given enough of a head start, and good planning, do things outrageously over-the-top for God?  I have to say that I do that more than I like to admit.

If there is something you would love to do, something that would make a difference, or just put a touch of special in the ministry to those who serve with you, don’t discard it because it’s a big deal.  Just break it down, and do it a little along.  You will be surprised at what you can do, just not all at once.
