Feeling Unappreciated?

Image

Have you ever come to that point in your life when you’ve given so much of everything you’ve got, sacrificed so much and yet it seems no one really appreciates?

It’s possible they actually thanked you and maybe someone sang your praise, but that was all. You were left feeling so spent and maybe drained.

So what do you do at this point? Get angry? Feel bitter? Wish you had not done so much? Decide to be a bit more self centered next time?

Well, the truth is, if no one seems to appreciate what you’ve done, God does.

Yes he does.

The bible says that whatsoever you do, do it as unto the Lord and not unto men.

Did you see that? WHATSOEVER, in other words, anything at all.

The bible also says that God is not unfaithful as to forget your labour of love.

You see, God really does appreciate all that you do especially when you give so much to bless the lives of others.

And He would reward you! That’s the truth, whether you want the reward or not, God is a just God, he does not forget.

Also, you need to start appreciating yourself. Yes…

Praise yourself for being able to give so much and bless the lives of others even if they are your family members.

Joseph recognised that God sent him ahead to Egypt to be a saviour for Israel at the time of famine. His means of getting there was by no means funny.

Same with you. God has empowered to you to be a source of succor and strength to the people in your sphere of contact. Thank him for counting you worthy of such a task and trust in him for the ability to do it and do it well.

And though people may not go overboard to show they appreciate you, the truth is they do! They are glad you are a part of their lives and they would not want to do without you.

So when next you are feeling unappreciated, take a moment to think about the love of God, be grateful for the opportunity to be a blessing and also know that people are grateful for your contributions to their lives.

God bless you.

  2. Here’s one person who appreciates what you do. I tried to read your blog last night and all of your content was erased…gone. Just the header and an Oops.

    Unsure of what was going on with you, I put out a prayer request to those who follow my blog…and here you are!

    What a relief! Have a blessed day. I’ll certainly have one, knowing that you’re all right. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Awww… That’s so touching. I’m so touched by your concern. Thanks so much. I actually changed my blog address from ‘obiamaka.wordpress.com’ to ‘ thestorytela.wordpress.com

      I guess I should have notified all my followers. I’m yet to put into place the forwarding thing on wordpress.com but I should do that shortly.

      Thank you so much and God bless you. and Thanks for appreciating. I appreciate you too
