Have a servant heart.

I asked of God...part2

by royowen

I said to God, "I am perplexed, as cleaning's not my way."
He spoke this word, "Don't be absurd, I'll guide you through each day."
He also said, "Just grab a mop, and clean the bathroom floor,
then fetch a brush, get off your tush, the toilet bowl's your chore."

"To be a servant, you must be upon your bended knee;
contrite of heart, to be a part, that is the Lord's decree."
Though He is Lord, He washed their feet, but Peter said,"No way,
you are so great that we should fete, so hear me when I say"

He looked at me and said these words, "I am your Lord, that's true,
then, I'm your teacher and your king, but, this wisdom give to you:
if you will seek a leader's crown, then you'll a servant be,
I wash your feet, and that's my treat, to set your proud heart free."

"Your love and worship raises me to rule upon my throne,
for that is why I share my wealth and take you for my own.
I give you life, remove all strife, to set you free from sin;
I call you friend and brother, kin, your freedom -- I will win."

This is the follow up to part one, these steps actually led to my bringing my gifting into play.
Luke 14:10 "But when you are invited; go and sit at the lowest place so that when your host comes, he may say to you, "Friend move up higher." Then you will be honoured by all who sit at the table with you."
