Thoughts from Gulfport

“Humble yourself, and cease to care what men think.” ~ A.W. Tozer

“It will do us good to be very empty, to be very weak, and so to go about our Master’s work.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

These quotes seem to sum up the experience that I have had this week in Gulfport. Simply, it is all about Christ. The moment that my “self” was put ahead of the Lord, I became discouraged. But once I put Christ ahead of everything and purposed to serve Him and Him alone, then I was satisfied in Christ. It didn’t matter if I heard the word “thanks”, or was given a grateful smile (although this did happen!). My joy comes from the Lord and Him only! This has been the biggest lesson I have learned this week: putting into practice what I already knew to be true…to serve others “as unto the Lord”!

Praise God!
