Humility : Being who I am
Updated: Feb 2, 2019
When I was struggling for defending myself against discouragement, rejection and doubt because of negative judgments and criticism about my journey of faith, Holy Spirit gave me this vision of bellflowers. When other flowers were boasting their vital power, fragrance and beauty, these bellflowers which seemed withered, weakened and faceless were silently waiting for their king. Then I saw one king walked in the garden. He found these bellflowers among many flowers and touched them with gentle hands. He smiled at them with such a love and said, "My beautiful ones, you understood the purpose of life. I created you to see nothing and no one but my face. My faithful ones, you believed in me and waited for this moment."
Jesus asked me this question; "Can you humble yourself and wait for Me without making yourself to be someone who is not you until I lift you up with My hands like these bellflowers?" It was the speechless moment. Still I ponder this message.
We were not made for this world. We were not made for doing great ministries, being famous people and making a fortune. We were made for Him. No matter what people think about your life, let the truth set you free. He loves you with the everlasting love. He knows your pure heart. He sees your real faith. Do not compromise to fill your cup with your own glory. Continue to live as the upside-down empty cup, the surrendered vessel to become the cup of His glory in His appointed time. He will be the great reward for those who are faceless, humble, and patiently waiting for Him alone with a pure heart.
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up."

Why are you withered? Why are you weakened? Why are you faceless? Noisy sounds all around me
No you are not what it says. No you are not what they think. No you are not what you feel. One voice inside of me
Humility… It’s waiting the One who created me. Humility… It’s believing the One who is in me. Humility… It’s being who I am as the One purposed. I humble myself to be myself.
Yes You love me as I am. Yes I am beautiful as I am. Yes I know who I am. I am Yours and You are mine.
Till that day You’ll come and lift up my head I'll worship You as I am. I'll glorify You as I am. I'll love You as I am.
