I was just given a bunch more responsibility at work. I am thankful that they trust me so much, but quite frankly, I can't help but be stressed out about it. Save it for the pulpit, I don't need a sermon.
In my life I never thought I would be smart enough or strong enough to handle the things I handle, and if I pull this off, holy cow! But I kept thinking about that saying "to whom much is given". I'll admit something to you, I didn't know that came from the bible. I know, say it with me "SINNER!!". I, like any good blogger, googled the saying, and lo & behold, there is was... Luke 12:48. Who says that the bible isn't relevent?! What to say, do I think that this is going to be easy, but to whom much is given, much more will be demanded. Great.
I am never amazed at the blessings God throws my way, and I guess, I should expect that even though He doesn't ask for anything in return (because He knows I can't ever pay Him back for His Son) that He'll want me to grow in Him, and that means, much more will be demanded. And I guess I should just count my lucky stars, that I've been blessed so much, huh?
Are you buying it, I'm not sure I am yet either, but I'll go pray on it....
Luke 12:48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
Worship Wednesday song - I'm a survivor by Reba McEntire
I was born 3 months too early
The doctor gave me 30 days
but I must of had my momma's will
And God's amazing grace
I guess I'll keep on livin'
Even if this loves to die for
Cause your bags are packed and I ain't cryin'
Your walking out and I'm not tryin' to change your mind
Cause I was born to be...
Chorus:The baby girl without a chance
A victim of the circumstance
The one who oughta give up
But she's just to hard headed
A single mom who works two jobs
Who loves her kids and never stops
With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter
I'm a survivor....
I don't believe in self-pity
It only brings you down
Maybe the queen of broken hearts
But I don't hide behind the crown
When the deck is stacked against me
I just play a different game
My roots are planted in the past
And though my life is changing’ fast
Who I am is who I wanna be
