My Valuable Daughter,
I know many people will define you by what you have conquered in your own competencies. Yet there is so much more to you than what’s on a piece of paper or engraved on a trophy. In fact, none of your trophies will enter heaven with you. Only what has been accomplished for My Kingdom can be kept for all eternity. Think about this, My beloved: What good are the praises of people if you accomplish nothing for Me while you are walking the earth? I have already conquered death for you; now I am asking you, in My strength, to accomplish great faith works that display My Majesty. These acts define the difference between a mediocre life and a miraculous life lived for Me. To become great in My Kingdom, you must live the rest of your days for an audience of one . . . Me.
The one who applauds your faith
Yet I dare not boast about anything except what Christ has done through me, bringing the Gentiles to God by my message and by the way I worked among them. –
Treasure of Truth
You are so much more than what you have accomplished.

:’) So true!!!! I have experienced the Holy Spirit in a whole new way this season! He has been so amazing! He honestly shows so much love to not just me, but others through me! I am extremely blessed that He uses me as a vessel of His love not just at home but literally everywhere I go. I know I am writing this here and “He applauds my faith” doesn’t count right now, but when I’m not on this account, the victories I have are between me and God – and I know He is watching me and seeing the obedience! Many times, what he says doesn’t make sense but when we follow His instructions things work out so well and others get bless along with yourself ^_^
