The beautiful heart of the handmaid

“Behold the handmaid of the Lord!  Be it unto me according to Thy word.”

Luke 1:38 “Behold, let thine handmaid be a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my lord.”  1 Samuel 25:41

The beautiful heart of the handmaid – surrendered to Him, His will, His word, His plan…..even when it isn’t understood and seems impossible.  Even when it is difficult and humbling.  It submits in a precious obedience to the wisdom of the One who loves perfectly and guides faultlessly.  Unafraid to trust the Lord and His holy purposes; unafraid to humbly serve the people of God.

Oh to have such a heart!
