Some days are just hard apparently 🙂 My guess is Rina had just woken up from a nap and was cranky bc I wasn’t getting her milk ASAP!!! Mean momma that I am I decided to grab a quick pic first. Either that or I told her “no” to something and that caused the little fussiness.
Why do we serve? If we are serving the Lord simply bc He has asked us to and He is Master and we are the servants then whether or not we receive recognition won’t matter. Whether or not the thank you is ever said, the applause is ever heard, the acknowledgement of ALL that we have done is seen, whether credit is ever truly given where credit is due, and whether gratitude is expressed with heartfelt appreciation will not matter. Bc that’s NOT why we’re serving.
There is a prayer in the Covenant Service Methodist Worship Book that sums this up well I think.
I am no longer my own but yours,
Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will;
Put me to doing; put me to suffering;
Let me be employed for you or laid aside for you,
Exalted for you, or brought low for you;
Let me be full, let me be empty
Let me have all things, let me have nothing;
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal…
May we learn to serve, and gently be admonished by the Holy Spirit when we are not, simply bc we are the servants and He is the Master. And if He calls I will come and serve, and when He is silent so will I be, no matter what I think I deserve.
