"God bring me closer to You..., whatever it takes" - Francis Chan in Crazy Love
Lately, I've been reading ana amazing book that has helped me to take a fresh look at my faith and how I seek to live out the teachings of Jesus. As I read these words today, I began to examine my own life and then wonder just how willing I was to pray this prayer and allow the ramifications of it to be a reality in my life.
Like many people I enjoy the life I've been given. I like the freedom and security that I have as I work and live in this great place called America. Still, I can't help but wonder, if my desire for safety and security has impeded my relationship with my Savior and hindered by own spiritual growth and maturity.
Am I willing to allow God to do whatever He wants in my life in order to draw me closer to Himself and to make me more like His Son. I do not think that I am there yet, but I know I want to be. So I guess my prayer for today is, "Lord, help me to trust you completely, so that You can do whatever You want with this life that You've given to me."
Will you join me in praying that prayer?
