FAITHFULNESS IS GOD'S STANDARD!
As His servants we are not required to be perfect or successful- simply faithful! Our assigned role is a trust. In His sovereignty He has said it is in this role we can best glorify Him.
Holy Father, You know the joys and heartaches of my role. I confess that I have strived for my will and worldly success and perfection instead of Yours. Grant me the courage to be a servant. Oh, God, I long to be faithful to You. I accept my assigned role as a gift. Teach me to 'cease striving and know that You are God'."
