Repost: Let Faithfulness Be Enough

LET FAITHFULNESS BE ENOUGH

You didn’t call me to be successful,
You called me to be faithful.
Keep me from the treadmill of performance.
Let faithfulness be enough.

You didn’t call me to be known,
You called me to know You.
Keep me obedient to what I know.
Let faithfulness be enough.

You didn’t call me to have men follow me,
You called me to follow you.
Keep me imitating Your faithfulness.
Let faithfulness be enough.

You didn’t call me to save others,
You called me to be a witness.
Keep me available.
Let faithfulness be enough.

You didn’t call me to receive glory,
You called me to give you glory.
Prove me to be faithful.
Let faithfulness be enough.

“Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”
(1 Corinthians 4:2 NIV)
