DUTIFULLY AND BEAUTIFULLY

DUTIFULLY AND BEAUTIFULLY
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 For all that You have graciously bestowed upon me, Heavenly Father, help me to be thankful.
For talents, virtues, gifts and blessings that you have entrusted me with, cause there to be a faithful undertaking of stewardship in each.
-Where I see another lack that which I possess; help me to employ an immediate fulfillment of that need.
-Where I intersect one who chaffs and rubs me sore inwardly, let me not refuse to give outwardly that which I would’ve given benevolently to another.
-Where I selfishly apply Thy great blessings to myself and forget to exact and employ those same blessings on to others,
... please forgive.
Help me to sow carefully, dutifully, and beautifully each little seed entrusted me.
Help me to foster growth in each little seed by consistently and daily applying the water of Thy word, the sunshine of Thy Spirit, and the fertilizer of faith on each precious grace granted.
Let the seed that is sown produce a harvest that is grown for Thy glory.
To the Giver of Gifts,
We acknowledge Thy grace;
And we humbly give thanks …
Amen.
