As I start to write, I am not sure what I even want to say. But I just want to share what is going on inside of me. I know God has called me to a life time of ministry and He has taken 52 years to prepare me! God has given me a passion like never before that is burning inside of me. It is like a fire that is blazing and it get stronger and stronger. As I look back on the last 30 years of ministry, I wish I could go back and change a couple of things! But as it stands, God is using all my experience to teach me, guide me, and prepare me for what He is about to show me. I am approaching the last 1/3 of my life and I am tired of the norm! For the first 2/3’s of my life I have been doing everything in my power to reach and to love on people. My strength and wisdom is not enough! Lord, thank you for what you have been showing me and placing in my heart! It’s scary but also exciting!
God I want to do ministry your way! I want to rely on your power and strength! Lord kill me and then fill me. I am tired of going through the motions of doing church and walking through life with no reliance on You. Show me your complete picture of what you are calling me to, and help me to walk in obedience! Man working for God is one thing, but God working in man is quite another! Take over Lord, move in me, stir up passion, and place me where you desire! Lord, don’t let me settle on something that is not God sized, or something I can do on my own. But help me to follow you no matter the cost.
Let’s Go Lord! I am yours! Christ in me, the Hope of all Glory! You lead, and I will follow. I hear you Lord.
