What energizes me:Seeing people come to a saving relationship with Jesus. Brings tears to my eyes every time I see someone accept Him. Also when I see God’s faithfulness, especially through discipleship, in my life and the lives of others, I really am energized.
When I am most aware of God’s presence in my life: Upon reading His Word and He speaks to me. When I see Him doing things that I could never do on my own.
