Our Badge of Honor
I find myself inspired by a simple, yet profound
quote from Meditations by Marcus Aruelius Caesar...
"Staying on his path was his badge of honor."
What most people just don't get is what it takes to stay on the path!
To continue on through all the muck, the battles, the drudgery
To hold the dream, the vision, until it becomes reality
Even when everything you touch, everything see with your eyes and hear with your ears contradicts what you believe...
What you KNOW in your heart
To hold the dream EVEN THEN!!
It seems everyone wants to do some "Great Work",
not realizing that God's glory is manifest in the
small and the seemingly mundane
The very Power of Universe is in the details...the so-called "drudgery" of life
Oswald Chambers, in his book, My Utmost for His Highest wrote,
"The great hindrance...is that we will look for big things to do. (even) Jesus took a towel and began to wash the disciples' feet."
And so in FAITH
We DO NOT ALLOW our feet take stray from the path
to our divine assignments
And we perservere UNTIL...
Then the blessing comes...
amd Our visions become reality
That's OUR Badge of Honor!
