I’ll be sure to steward your time wisely. While we are here, bring your favorite beverage. Ha! You may not laugh or even cry, but there is great responsibility in stewarding a “Yes.” Initially, when writing this particular blog, social media was engulfed by the “Can We Talk Challenge.” So, being polite, I decided to wait until the “Can We Talk Challenge” had concluded. Ha! Not that it really mattered. My version of Can We Talk really does not have any relation to the song, but everything to do with stewarding your “Yes.” “Yes” is not a challenge, but a decision.
There are moments in life that refine how one embraces their faith. All of us have been given a measure of faith, however; when the Lord disrupts the comforts of faith that you’ve always known to introduce you to the next level of faith that requires your growth in Christ, spiritual maturity, unwavering faithfulness, complete trust in Him and patience all without your permission, that can be quite an adjustment. Whew! I found myself navigating the corridors of relying on a version of faith no longer beneficial in this season. Did I lose you with the previous sentence? Let me say it this way. When growing in relationship with Christ, in every aspect; growth is required whether its how you choose to handle circumstances, triumphs or something different.
In giving Christ my fresh ‘Yes,’ having the privilege to steward this “Yes” has been different than what I’ve known before. Completely assured that Christ remains my priority, I gave Him my complete trust. Completely confident that Christ has the details, in stewarding my fresh ‘Yes,’ I’m okay with knowing that I have His word. Wherever you find yourself in life, whether navigating career, relationships, choices, decisions, or just trying to figure things out, be assured that part of the responsibility in stewarding your “Yes” is being okay with growing in faith.
Christ is still my priority. Furthermore; serving Christ is not optional for me. Being a servant is more than what I do, It’s who I am.
