I came across a quote I shared in Facebook three years ago from Emily P. Freeman "I'm learning to discern the work that has my name on it.
A task may be good, but that doesn't make it mine."
Learning to hear God's voice is an important part of knowing what is your assignment and what is not. There are thousands of good ministries and needs waiting to be met on this planet, but not all of them are ours to fulfill. We have many demands upon our time, and learning to say "no" to important projects that aren't ours does not mean those ministries or works aren't valuable. It just means they aren't our jobs to perform.
