Unconditional Humility

I’m approaching the end of week 6 at this assignment and I confess, I catch myself complaining and whining nearly every single day. I see so many things that I would change, but I don’t have the ability to make the changes because I am just passing through. Pride has reared its ugly head and I don’t like who I am in this place.

For every complaint I make against this hospital, I hear a voice in my head ask if I am giving the best care I can give? When I receive a patient from the ER who is a sweaty mess, am I taking the time to clean him up? Or am I doing the minimum I can do to pass him off to the next person? Am I allowing myself to be influenced by bad behavior or am I influencing others by representing the Lord?

I want to do better. I want to represent the Lord well. I want to be unconditionally humble. I want to persevere and be an influencer, not a fool tossed about on waves of anxiety and self pity.

‘ With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue will break a bone.’ Proverbs 25:15

O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense. Proverbs 8:5

The battle continues…

  1. I think as soon as you accept that there is no way you can do this, that you are incapable of living that kind of life, and just surrender it and you to Jesus, He will work through you. Our flesh wants what it wants. Only Jesus has the power.m
