Am I living “bent low?” Check out this rich blog post from Katie of the “Kisses from Katie” blog…

Check out this rich blog post from Katie of the “Kisses from Katie” blog. Katie is living sent in the way she heard God send her to live. Are we living sent, bending low, in the pathway relationships of our everyday, in the daily rhythms of our life, wherever we are and with whomever we come in contact? May we bend low…

We bend.

I bend to sweep crumbs and I bend to wipe vomit and I bend to pick up little ones and wipe away tears. I bend over a big pot of stew and I bend to fold endless laundry and I bend over math books and spelling sentences and history quiz corrections. And at the end of these days I bend next to the bed and I ask only that I could bend more, bend lower.

Because I serve a Savior who came to be a servant. He lived bent low. And bent down here is where I see His face.

He lived, only to die.

Could I?

Die to self and just break open for love.

This Savior, His one purpose to spend Himself on behalf of messy us. Will I spend myself on behalf of those in front of me?

And people say, “Don’t you get tired?” and yes, I do. But I’m face to face with Jesus in the dirt, and the more I bend the harder and better and fuller this life gets. And sure, we are tired, but oh we are happy. 

Because bent down low is where we find fullness of Joy.
