Yesterday, Amazon ran a "deal of the day" on Smitten and it was exciting to watch the book fly up the Amazon rankings to number one in Christian Fiction. Granted, in the scheme of things it means nothing, but ultimately, it was an emotional boost I needed.
The results of our work here on earth often go unnoticed and unappreciated. Everyone longs to be acknowledged, but often, we don't get to see the results of our hard work here. We wait for those precious words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
I just want to encourage you today that if you're involved in some kind of behind-the-scenes work where no one says, "Atta Girl!" Or maybe you're not paid for the work that you do, but ultimately, you know God is watching and He is pleased. What you're called to do may not be something that is acknowledged financially or in accolades. (I mean, we worshiped Lance Armstrong and that was a lie, right?)
God says thank you. He knows.
