Today, Judy shared with me a nugget of wisdom I want to pass along. She explained she worships with flags and a lot of people are drawn to the Holy Spirit inside of her and compliment her on her gift. However, because it’s different; she gets just as many weird looks and critical comments about how she worships.
So, every night before she goes to sleep she has learned to gather each compliment as if it were a flower and puts them into a bouquet and lays them at Jesus’s feet. She does the exact same thing with the negative words and rejection. She gathers each action and statement into a bouquet and lays them at Jesus’s feet.
She explained her gift is not about her. It’s all about Him and she does it for His glory! By laying both the good and the bad down, it prevents her from becoming prideful and she does not take ownership of the rejection. Jesus wants is all! This is a beautiful illustration of 1 Peter 5:6-7. This simple act keeps her humble and it keeps her secure in who she is in Him!
