“Nothing is Useless” (Our Daily Bread – June 12, 2017)

MEME - ODB - for Nothing is Useless - June 12, 2017 - Created by ODB TeamWe can get frustrated or feel useless when we love God but can’t physically serve Him in the ways we want or are accustomed to serving Him. The Lord used a fierce battle with discouragement and a great friend to remind me that nothing we do in the name of the Lord is useless, even when what we’re doing requires very little physical exertion.
