... of humble service

At the passing of a few months after beginning the Anti-Depressants, I continued to feel great!

“Oh Lord I thank You again for sending Sister ****** to encourage & teach me as requested. I know that at first I questioned if it were her that You sent because my specifics had not been met, I’m sorry & I thank You for not taking the blessing away from me as a result of that. On Monday night, 09 April 2007, at Ladies Bible Study, Sister ****** told me that she is proud of me & that she sees a mighty spirit in me that’s high & of God. I’m paraphrasing, but I was shocked because I’d just explained to everyone that I am a “poor me” person. She stated that she sees You Lord doing great things in me. I see myself as making You look bad because of how I act. She so lovingly assured me that it’s the outcome You see. I just wanted to thank You again for her & her undeserved praise. Another Sister said that I’m Sister “Rochelle,” (an awesome woman of God who patiently walks with me through this journey)! Now that one was shocking as well, I truly do not deserve that comment either. I read in the journal for Tuesday that pride bars the way & shuts You out. Lord anytime I become proud, humble me Lord and may I learn from it. Thank You for allowing me this pleasure of being washed in Your blood, Amen.”

“The apostles said the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!’ He replied, ‘If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. Suppose one of your had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? Would he not rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink?’ Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants’ we have only done our duty.,” Luke 17:5-10 NIV
