My 34th Year Resolution

A while back, maybe two years ago I woke up on the morning of my birthday and heard the Lord say, "Your year begins today."   At the time, I had just gone through a huge change in my life, so to hear these words that morning sparked something in me; lit a flame.   He told me not to set goals on January 1st as most of the world, but that my year begins and began on another date, the day in which I was born.   So this year is my 34th year of existence and my goal is to make it the best year of my existence.   

Here's the goal: to be the best servant of God that I can be, to be the best servant of the church of God that I can be, to be the best servant of my leaders that I can be and to be the best servant of those whom I lead.

That's my goal(s), my plan(s) and even my desire.   A few weeks before my birthday, this word of instruction and exhortation came to me in prayer.   And then I came across Matthew 20:26-28]

"Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.   And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave,  just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”


...so serving and being a servant is Christ-like.   Not that I never new that, but this time and or day, those words just hit top the core of my heart and actually meant more to me than before.   Seeing that I was already "serving" God and in the ministry, none of that was added to me, but "giving" my all became the focal point; all to God, all to His church, all to those whom lead me and all to whom I lead.

This is my RESOLUTION, for I myself was not born to be served, but to serve, and to give my all.
