I strive to be the best
At what I do
I can’t sleep
I am so anxious
About the next test
Will I pass or fail
Neither is an option
Excelling I must
It will happen
When others just want to get by, I want to be excellent. I don’t know why, other than I represent Christ and I want everyone to know that He is an Excellent God. If you are looking for a God to serve, trust me on this One, I have found a God who will never let you down. He will be with you at all times. That is what I need, a God who will always walk and talk with me–in spite of me.
Right now as I sit here, I have a situation that is trying to cause me worry. I went before this Excellent God and placed it at His feet. I trust that it will all be worked out in my favor. He has never failed me yet. I can’t tell you that it has completely disappeared from my mind, every now and then it pops back in, but I calm myself, I tell myself that it will all work out. When I look back in my mind for other situations of the past that had brought me worry, and I prayed and left it at His feet, He worked it out for me. Why not this time? He is my Excellent God.
One of my favorite scriptures in the Bible is Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” I hold onto this scripture sometimes for dear life. It is my “go to” scripture. My job is to be in my calling and in accordance with his purpose.
I recollect a couple of years ago when my Bishop told me that God said that I was under-performing. Wow. I have since started to use the gifts that God has deposited in me. Who wants to be a disappointment to such a faithful God? Not me, for sure. To whom much is given, much is required. God has truly given me much, time to give some back. When I give back, I strive for excellence. I do my best since He deserves nothing less. He is my Excellent God!
See me reaching for the stars. Why not? He is the most Excellent God.
