Luke 17:10 “So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’””

The entire parable of the unworthy servant is a beautiful view as to how our actions should be towards the Lord. I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. In that, I am called to follow Him and I am called to listen and go without complaining. In the parable we are told of a servant who has been out in the fields working all day for his master. An example is henceforth presented, would the master of the house then tell his servant to have a seen at the dinner table, to relax, and to enjoy the food which is presented? No. The servant would be instructed to continue serving after a long day in the field. The servant would be told to make dinner and serve his master until instructed to stop. If this servant that is being spoken of is a servant for a creation, how much more so should we be a servant for The One and Only Creator? We are called to work out in the field all day, whatever that field may be. For me, right now, that field is teaching, that field is hospitality, that field is whatever is brought to me by my authority that has been put in place by the Lord. When I am done with that field, in 6 months, I am not called to a time of relaxation. I am not called to a break. I am called to press on and press forward. No matter what the season that I am in looks like I am still a servant. I am still a servant of the Lord Almighty who is the only Worthy Master. Also, in doing what we are called to our hearts must be in it as well. We are called to look upon the Cause of the service, not the service itself. The Lord Jesus Christ should be the great Cause of everything that takes place in our lives because “We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.”

Pslam 127:1 "Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain."

I have to make more of an effort to allow for the Lord to take over situations. Sometimes, in my immaturity I fail to allow the Lord into situations, even big situations, and they end up failing simply because I never allowed the Lord to play a part in them. If I am not inviting the Lord into something I cant wait around expecting to be blessed by Him. If the Lord isn't my center of all things I am simply being foolish.
 I tend to worry a lot and I neglect to give that worry over to that Lord. The Lord cant bless the situations in which I don't invite His loving grace and mercy into. Even while being fully aware that I am able to do absolutely nothing in my own strength I forget, I try and attempt to do it on my own for one reason or another, usually because I am impatient. Thats another thing that I tend to forget to hand over the Lord, my lack of patience. On the other hand I might be scared to pray for more patients because I know the Lord will be faithful to bring somethin…

Psalm 33:8 “Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!”

Stars have to be one of my favorite creations. The stars have zero purpose, besides our sun which without it we would freeze, but I’m talking about the stars that are billions of miles away. The stars that I lay out in the field looking at in complete awe of my Creator. The Lord spoke The biggest stars into creation simply by the vapor of His mouth. The Largest of starts were spoken into existence with our Lord’s mouth. That is such a crazy thought, and the Lord created them just to show us more of His amazing character. He created those stars for our pleasure, there is no other explanation for it. I am so guilty of putting my Lord into this box, into this little tangible thing, but our Lord is so big and amazing that the biggest things in all of creation were only His breath. I know for me, I need to take more time to appreciate his creation. I need to look for the Lord’s beauty and goodness in not only the large details but also the little details. Look at a snowflake. There is no r…

Romans 15:1

We are all weak human beings but through the Holy Spirit, the Lord blesses us with His strength. The keyword in that sentence is His, His strength. It isn't my strength, it isn't your strength, but it is the Lord's strength. I often find myself forgetting how badly I need the Lord's strength, but I remembered while climbing Agua, that's for sure. I also tend to forget that nothing is actually mine, including strength.

I struggle to use that strength and give it to those who are weak. I often use His strength in my life to focus on myself. I take that strength and I run with it. So let's face it, I'm selfish. I use the strength to patch myself up. Forgetting that even in His strength, I am still human. Forgetting that regardless I am still weak in my own strength without the Lord. Forgetting that the Lord has blessed me with His strength to help others, and to build up my neighbor.

I am called to bear in the failings of the weak with the strength of the Lor…
