I’m learning so much lately. I went to church this morning and during slivers of reflection can’t help but say to myself “you have done more this year than you have in year’s past”
In December I told myself that I would do everything I felt God call me to do. I was giving him from January 1st-December 31st 2016 to do what he wants through me. LOL! I know– who am I to bargain with GOD??? It’s my style and He knows that and yet still loves me.
I would not say no, I would not whine,or be fearful. I would just have a “suck it up cupcake” mentality and do it with a good heart.
Let me tell you; it has been paying off and has been quite a whirlwind all at once. I am reading more books than I have in a long time, I found a job I am enjoying and that allows me the balance I need, I’m finding time for hobbies (working on a cookbook) , I’ve tried out for my church’s music ministry team,and created a networking presentation I am putting into action.
But the most exciting piece is:
My relationship with the Lord is growing in ways that to describe it would sound surreal.
He is ever present.
This journey while filled with lots of good and joyous moments is also filled with learning some tough lessons.
The hardest one for me: learning to have a TRULY servant heart.
Man-o-man this one is tough!
Pride jumps in, fear of rejection or ungratefulness jumps in. However, today in church I was reminded that to truly love the Lord you MUST have a servant heart regardless of the outcome with those around you.
He wants us to love and give selflessly.
I can’t guarantee the rest of my life to be perfect in this area. I can though commit to the next seven days of servant heart and see what it will bring about. I feel it to be a calling and as promised,plan to follow.
Here is to the next seven days, are you with me?
