Through out my life I,have experienced many path which tried to deviate me from this path.There are many ways in this world that instill in you the type of service a person should do.And the rewards of this action taken.There was always an offer of the gain of more finacial means,the gain of material wealth,and the pride, and prestige with a certain title.This was a constant berage of life circumstances,this is the sum total of your said service.To be accepted in the eyes of society.
This had little or nothing to do with, my soul's service and reverence to the Lord.Or relating to the building up of His heavenly kingdom.This was also leaving,the heart and soul,service of fellowship,and be a vessel whose light to shine through to others.After many years of evaluating this issue of service.I,praise the Lord, for opening up my heart and soul,to His calling for me and the life service, He has chosen for me.With a grateful,and dedicated heart,I,shall journey through this life,being of service to the Lord,and to my fellow brothers and sisters,in and around my life.
Many have asked me why do you serve others,who are opposing and indifferent to you and sometimes say hurtful things.I,say to them did not Christ,do this for me when I, was just as they are.He, didn't abandon me when I,was struggling with these life issues.The Lord,placed many people in my life,to help me have a life changing experience.So with thier endless,and unconditonal service to help me.
I,can now pass this legacy of life service on to other's.In my souls's quiteness,and my soul's confidence,I, can strive for soul righteouness.By being a faithful servant to the Lord,He takes care of all my personal needs.Which in turn give me the complete heart and soul of service to others daily.The Lord,is constanly equipping me for the heart and soul of daily service,in whatever He will place before daily.
For the equipping of the servants for work of service,to the building up of the body of Christ.(Ephesians 4:12 NIV) This will be my daily call to be of service,in any area that the Lord,calls on me for this day.I,do pray for this to be a legacy,and calling for many.So, now I, will go into my soul's quiteness,and reverence,and await for the Lord's, calling for my service today.May that blessing of service be a choice we all will make today.For this is what I,pray in the quiteness, and hublness of a heart and soul of service,to the Lord,and others who will enter in my life.
