A Faithful Servant



Isn't this so powerful? It doesn't really matter if "all" you've done for The Lord is washing tables after a potluck! If you have truly served Him with a humble heart, it doesn't make a difference what you are doing--God is pleased by it. Remember when Mary broke the jar of perfumed ointment to anoint Jesus' head? He announced to everyone there that her act of sacrificial service and love would be spoken of for ages to come...why? Because she "did what she could"! So this week whether you are leading many people in some church ministry, or whether you are just showing up to church cleanup day to help out with the most menial of tasks, serve The Lord with a faithful and loving heart, and He will reward you! Just a little encouraging thought to get you through the rest of the week. :)

  1. Thanks for posting this Mykaela it was a blessing. While reading it i was reminded that to serve him well we dont need to always do something amazing to please him. But to do the small things and be faithful and humble in that duty. Thanks again for posting this.

    This is such a timely post!! I've been struggling lately with the fact that my illness limits me so much. There are a lot of things I'm able to do, but I get so caught up on the things I'm NOT doing. And it feels like the things that I can do are all these small, behind-the-scenes stuff, and it almost feels insignificant. I was encouraged by what a friend told me the other day, "God's grace meets us where we're at." I just have to stay faithful!

    1. Your comment was such a blessing to me, Elizabeth!! <3 I actually was revamping some things on the blog the other day, and blogger somehow bumped this post up to the top for a while or something? I wrote it a few months ago, and it was saying it was just posted, for some reason. Anyhow, I was really frustrated about it at the time, but I am so happy that it was just what needed to be there! And you are so right...God knows exactly what your personal limitations are, and He is going to bless you for doing WHAT YOU CAN! When you get a chance, you should read Mark 14:3-9, especially verse 8. Keep up the good work...even if ALL you can do is pray, that is truly so, so valuable!! God bless you, sister! :)
