but for most of my Christian life.
(I'm sure those who know me would really be surprised by this)
so much so,
I'm not afraid to hold bugs, reptiles or other yucky things.
I had not given my heart fully to God because of
that same fear.
We fear that if we let Him be in control,
He’ll make us open up to people, risk ourselves, do scary things,
What about you?
Our lives should be different,
fearlessness and bold belief.
We would rather live a lie than come to the Truth Personified, Jesus,
and let Him show us our hearts.
particularly our expectations of how our lives should be.
We need to let go of our presumptions about the life we should have
let Jesus dream a new dream for us.
A dream where others are changed through the Holy Spirit in us.
A dream we can't even fathom."
I have released FULL control of my life
ALL of my heart.
And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them,
“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
For whoever would save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it."
Mark 8:34-35 ESV
