A few weeks ago, when I was working on setting up this newsletter, I suddenly felt nervous. What if they don't like it? What if the content isn't what they're looking for? What if the design isn't right?
I prayed about it and, soon after, realized that if my goal is to serve my readers and not necessarily to please them, it will work out. God reminded me that I simply need to be faithful in using my talents and gifts, with the right motives, and He'll take care of the outcomes.
Why am I telling you this? Because I also want you to know that it took a lot of pressure off. And that's something you can experience with your projects and responsibilities. Whether it's homeschooling your kids, writing a big report for work, or coordinating a virtual event for your church, pause and take a step back for a moment. What's driving you? The need to please everyone, or the desire to bless them?
You can't always do both, but you always get to choose which one matters most.
