Yesterday I was listening to one of my favorite radio programs - Revive our Hearts with Nancy Demoss. At the end of the program, Nancy read a poem called "A Little Place". It really encouraged me, so I decided to share it here:
Where should I work today, dear Lord,
and my love flowed warm and free.
He answered and said, “See that little place?
Tend that place for me.”

I answered and I said, “Oh no, not there!
No one would ever see,
No matter how well my work was done.
Not that place for me.”

His voice, when He spoke, was soft and kind.
He answered me tenderly,
“Little one, search thy heart of thine.
Are you working for them or me?
Nazareth was a little place
and so was Galilee.”

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
- Colossians 3:23-24 ESV
