What do I want? Do I know what I want?
The struggle sharpens our spiritual eyes to see beyond seeing. The struggle is purpose-full.
This is why I can never serve another.
My shenanigans and foolishness can never exhaust Your supply.
What would happen if you gave real responses to this question?
What would you say in response if you encountered real responses?
I had to step into the mess if I wanted to accomplish anything of substance.
Each action a blow to His body.
Each choice a slap to His face.
With blood-stained face, and tattered flesh.
With all the strength His soul had to give.
He chose me as His and fully paid the price.
Worship as recognition of authority [Master & Lord]
Worship as a living testimony [Savior & Redeemer]
Worship as living out the gospel no matter the cost [A life of surrender]
Worship as unbridled, unguarded, extravagant display of love (Humility]
The battle rages within.
What I want to do versus what I ought to do.
Through these lenses of war I make decisions.
Daily choices, that determine the outcome of life and living.
Imagine a world where I am me, and you are you. A world where me being me does not take away from you being you.
This Dichotomy, where logic makes no sense at all.
Where instead of running parallel, all things intersect.
A place where Last is First, and Surrender is Honor.
This place where Death became Life.
I have no idea where I am
I have no inkling as to where I am going
Certain uncertainty that is all I am sure of
What is my motive for that which I say I believe?
What is my motive for following Him?
What is my motive for all that I do “for Him”?
Do I even know ‘what I believe and why I believe it’?
I stumble. I fall. I bruise myself, and sometimes I bleed.
I stumble, I fall. I battle mind against Spirit, body against heart.
I stumble, I fall. It all seems too much, what would it mean to give up?
I stumble, I fall. Over and over it seems.
God can accomplish more in a day than I can accomplish in a lifetime. Let’s take a moment to let that sink in…
So, what does it mean to you to be a follower of Christ?
I look forward to reading and sharing in your responses.
