While we should never do anything in order to be seen by others and applauded for our efforts. still, it’s a fact of life that we work harder and flourish more when we have a sense of accomplishment that is partly due to others expressing their appreciation. Every one of us has experienced being unappreciated – or worse – when we’ve poured ourselves into a task. This could range anywhere from the workplace to the home, from your volunteer work to going out of your way to help a friend or a neighbor. On Monday, let’s talk about this idea of feeling unappreciated, and how we can use it to draw closer to Jesus and increase our dependence on Him alone.

Thank you for your wonderful show. I hope you can respond to my dilemma about not feeling appreciated. My oldest daughter has always wanted me to do things for her to drive the grandkids to the dentist work or whatever. While I do it for her there is never a thank you for even having me over for dinner. once a month. Since I drive the grandkids I’m retired from working and unfortunately have a limited income. Well for many people that would be just fine but it is a struggle for me financially. I feel unappreciated because she just doesn’t think of me, We are both the same size in clothes and she will just get rid of them or give them away before even asking if I would like them.
Just a few days ago my Granddaughter wanted a ride to work so even though my car was near empty I was hoping God will provide me a safe journey there and back, but that did not happen. It was the day befre payday so I had no extra funds to get gas. I called her and asked if she would pickme up. SHe respnded that it was my fault and had to get my life in order. It took me four hours to get home as a dear friend took me home. I know it my fault for not saying no. But that does not excuse her from heping. My heart aches so bad over this and now she won’t talk to me. Mostly because I told her husband who did it agree with her stance and now there is more problems. Can you help by giving me some advice. I listen to your show as often as I can. Bety
