Did I not see faces weeping and begging for mercy?
Did not my heart go out to souls in the dirt and suffering?
Yes, I long to be among the poor of this world and hold the suffering. However, anything I do to be a servant to these great people will not overcome a mission the Lord has called us believers to. Why would I not dedicate my life to the Lord and spend all my days serving him?
I am content to live a humble and unimportant life. I cannot change the world. I am but one. However, the Lord can use me to change individuals.To show people His great love.
I seek no glory for myself. May all who see the radiant and glorious light in me know it is not mine. May those that look into the dark night and see the light of the moon. May they see it pierce the darkness. May they know the Lord put the moon in the sky to reflect the light of the sun so the night would not be consumed by darkness. May I be a moon that reflects the sun.
For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And I trust that my life will bring honour to Christ, whether I live or die. For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. Philippians 1:20-21
