The Willing Servant

Here is an oldie but a goodie – I wrote it back in 2001.

“The Willing Servant” (September 2001)
By: Debra Sue Higginbotham
a.k.a. Healthy Habit Lady

Dear Lord – open my heart –
and open my mind as well,
I want to be your servant…
even IF it’s hard to tell.

Please forgive my grumbling –
if it should come about,
show me where I’m needed…
so I can be helping out.

Dear Lord – take my hand –
and help me understand,
you ARE my foundation…
in the midst of sinking sand.

Please forgive my hesitance –
if I am slow when I react,
teach me how to witness…
with humility and tact.

Dear Lord – lead the way –
and be with me today,
help me be an example…
in all I do and say.

Oh you know I need you –
remind me what is true,
faith isn’t really faith…
until it’s all I’m holding onto.

Dear Lord – give me the nerve –
to resist Satan’s curve,
to walk a narrow path, and …
to Step Forth and Serve !!

As always, make champion choices,
The Healthy Habit Lady
