Amazing Love

This morning I opened the word of God and read the first 8 chapters of the book of Hebrews.  With each verse my heart continued to fill up with His love for me and my Love for Him.

As most know, last night we arrived late from a mission trip to Romania.  It was a trip that was filled with more than this post could hold.  One thing was for sure God was not only working through us, He was working in us.

Over the last 8 months God has been doing a work in my life that I did not know I really needed.  I have been challenged by the Lord in every area of my life.  In each area, it seemed as if God was placing His spotlight and forcing me to see what He already see’s.  Hebrews 4:13 reads as follows, “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give and account.”

In these last 8 months I have been giving and account for 19 years of ministry and 36 years of being a Christian.  Much of what I have seen has been a reason to repent so many times.  So much of my life has been lived in pursuit of my wishes, my will, and my way.  But because of His amazing love, He has chosen at this time to awaken me to what life is all about.

I am to live my life for His glory and to accomplish His goals.  So I can confidently say, “I need nothing except the resources necessary to accomplish these things.”  I am at the place where I am honestly saying, “God I do not want to live another second for me.  I do not want to do anything but your will.”

This is a liberating place and at the same time it is a scary place because He is not finished with me yet. I have surrendered it all to Him.  So wherever He leads I will go.  If He wants me to be a Pastor of a local congregation, His will be done!!!  If He wants me to be a missionary on foreign soil, His will be done!!! If he wants me to serve in a public sector, His will be done!!!

As I write this I seek your prayer in this makeover as well as your prayer covering because the enemy will not sit by and allow this to happen without a fight.

I am so thankful that He has loved me along this journey.  Oh how I pray that you would experience His amazing love today.  Here is what the writer of Hebrews told us to do, “Let us therefore come boldly before the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need,” 4:16.
