Simply a choice...

If there is one thing that my heart is most closely knit too, it is the cross of Jesus Christ. It is my all and has become the passion of my life ever since I chose to place myself upon that tree. Nothing hurts me worse than to see the cross despised or its meaning diminished. I cringe at how it has merely become a symbol among the common Christian and so very very few have ever experienced it themselves. I have found no greater joy than in letting everything go, to trust His guiding hand. No greater peace is mine then in shaking this cup empty and allowing my Creator to fill it overflowing. I would shrink from living if I could not die – all of me, my every thought, word, and action, my likes and dislikes, my ideas, goals, dreams, plans and everything that gives me an identity – letting Him live, letting His Word fill the void left over.

So simple right? Not I but Christ. Yet so very few understand. I have seen many who want to give up all, who try to give up all, but seldom have I met those who choose to give up all right now, right here. I've found its a choice – a choice of freedom.

"But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world." Galatians 6:14

  2. You've got a very good point here. I know it's been like that for me. I'd been trying to give up tea's (supper), as a self-control thing, but could never do it. Thankfully though, now I "have it under my belt". :) (Stella made reference to that in her blog post: pressingforward.blogspot.com/2012/05/no.html)
