Servants Ministry

Ministry is:

Giving when you feel like keeping

Praying for others when you need to be prayed for

Feeding others when your own soul is hungry

Living truth before people even when you can’t see results

Hurting with other people even when your own hurt can’t be spoken

Keeping your word even when it is not convenient

Being faithful when your flesh wants to run away



  1. Love the truth and simplicity Betty. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and heart.

  2. I have had this for years and keep it always near so I can review it. There is so much confusion out there on what to do and what not to do that is put under the title of ministry. I am a simple woman so need the simplicity of this to bring me back to what is important to God. Thanks Bill for your comment. Blessings brother.

  3. This is the inconvenient truth of God. These simple things are what marks the people of God... and only God can see it...

    In the same vein, is the thought of honor that our society has forgotten; to do the right thing even when it costs us everything...

    Awesome post, Betty.

  4. Thanks Floyd...you are so right, He loves us giving Him glory even when no one sees what we do. And right on brother as far as society goes...doing the right thing even when it cost is a lost art. We live in an , "it's all about me society"...God help us to keep our eyes on Him so we can do the ministry He has called us all to.

  5. Dear Betty,

    Your posts are always so beautiful timed and full of truth. Thank you for sharing! I am blessed by your words of wisdom again. I pray you are doing well. :)


  6. Oh, my Betty....

    A drink of water for my thirsty soul this morning. It's as if my Father is saying, I see you, Diane.

    Humbly and teary-eyed, I thank you!

  7. Jennifer...I am blessed that you hop over and read this old womans blog. I am blessesd as I read about how you are ministring to women. God knows we need lots of wise hearted women in this day and time. Take courage my sister delights in your worship of Him. Keep spreading His words, His truth, His commandments. Blessings

  8. Diane so often our ministry is only seen by Him who heart we blessed.
    Hoping you are feeling rested and full of energy to face each day. Your gift of encouragement is so needed in this battle...especially with the young Christians. We have a few battle scars that helped us learn truth and give us confidence to share what God has taught us. Blessings my friend.

  9. I love you, Betty! Your Wisdom, your courageous heart, your encouraging words are a blessing to all who know you!

  10. Yes, truly beautiful and a good list to carry.
