TITLE: In Jesus' Humbling Presence

Fellow Writers and Weekly Writing Challenge co-competitors.
I was so excited, I had placed my first article: God Teaches Me Fellowship in the FaithWriters Weekly Writing Challenge. When I pulled up the list, my article title and two others were highlighted in red. I was positive I had placed in the top three for that week. I told all my friends: “My very first article for the Faith Writers weekly challenge placed in the top three. I can’t wait to see where in the top three I actually placed.” So, confident that I was supposed to move to the next level, I put my baptism article in Intermediate. This was not a good idea, since I had not received confirmation that I had placed in the top three, just a false assumption based on red script.

Imagine my very red face when I looked up the fellowship topic a week after the challenge had ended; and I was not only below the top three, but my article never even got Honorable Mention. Compared to the winners, my article was totally different. I am different, but it is no embarrassment to despise not small beginnings. Remember the scripture that says you are to take a lesser seat at the feast, so that you can be promoted, not demoted. Oh, dear, and this is after I had placed my baptism article up a level, because after all: the rules say once you place in the top three, you are supposed to go to the next level. I wrote to the leadership at FaithWriters, but I think it is too late for this week’s challenge, to go in the right spot. I truly “Jumped the Gun”.

However, even though I am embarrassed, I will swallow my pride and let my red face get pale and pray for a few days and write my article on this week’s topic “Sunday School” and make sure to place it in the Beginner Level this time. There is no disgrace in being a beginner. As we were toddlers, we all had to crawl before we could walk. Lord, I fell down, but I’m going to get back up and try again.
