1. a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people.

Am I privileged?  That is determined by the vantage point that I’m seeing from.  Am I perched up high on a mountain high and looking down at others or am I fallen on my face and struggling to just see above the blades of the grass.  If I’m being honest I would say that I’ve been in both places over my span of life.  Thankfully, I have now come to a place of equality, I am neither high on the mountain top or just barely seeing above the grass blades.

I find my privilege in Christ. I serve out of that privilege. I breathe out of that privilege. I survive out of that privilege. I love out of that privilege.

2 Corinthians 8:2  (Full Chapter)

In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.  For I testify that they gave as much as they were able,and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own,  they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.

John 1:12 [Full Chapter]

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
I am privileged to be a child of God and I am privileged to wait for Him and He will give me the desires of my heart as I serve Him.
Lord thank You for Loving me, filling my heart with Joy, showing me Abundant Grace and Mercy and Calling me Your Child. Amen!

  1. Rhonda, thanks for this reminder that privilege isn’t either/or. It’s both. We’re both humbled and privileged, sometimes at the same moment. I need to remember this and the grace that comes from recognizing it.
