   "What is God's standard of evaluation for you and me in our given roles?  Success?  Perfection??  His word tells us, 'Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful' 1Corinthians 4:2


   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'."
                                                                                                         From Calm My Anxious Heart
