I don’t want to live my life resisting what offends me or the things I don’t like. Rather I want to live receiving all of life as from God.
I am seeing life like I rest in the palm of God’s hand and that because I am His, all things in my life are Jesus touching, guiding, and leading me.
I am not looking for places I can plant my flag of mastery; I am seeking a voice, The Voice of the Author.
You may not currently see God's movement in your life. You may be questioning, “Where are You, God?” But God's weaving a tapestry to give us every opportunity to know Him.
Why does our God make our living reality something unseen rather than seen? And why is faith required to please God and nothing else?
We live in the Reality of our unseen realm. We're called to suspend our earthly reason and logic to believe in something fantastical.
Living is about relationship with Him. And the way He accomplishes this is to reduce us down, down to dependence on Him, a moment-by-moment involvement.
I would think that I at least could define my OWN needs…not so much.We are too close to our need to really know what our actual needs are.
I am not the owner of my body or life; I am merely the steward. I don’t have the right or the ability to care for myself.
Stress is the indicator that we own something we can’t control. Inevitably, we will fret over what we own because it owns us. Ownership is the issue!
This is the Holy Grail of all questions. “How do I let Christ live my life?” What does it mean to live "Not I But Christ" in reality?
I don’t celebrate a pagan holiday. No, I pray with exuberant joy that Jesus' name will come to be known to lost multitudes throughout the Christmas season.
