I don’t want to long for approval. For agreement. For the thumbs up of my pastors, parents, friends, co-workers, etc.
I don’t want to find myself bound by routine.
I don’t want to limit what God can do with my selfishness.
I don’t want to be comfortable all the time.
I don’t want to be lazy.
I don’t want to have the next 6 months planned to a T.
What I want is a passion and a faith that lead me left, right, backwards, forwards, to a standstill, and then backwards again. I want a faith that has me doing things my logic can never explain.
What I want is to understand that my relationship with Christ is so necessary that without it I’d be for all of my purposes dead.
What I want is to wake up ready to sacrifice my life for my brothers and sisters every morning.
What I want is to see my sin so clearly that I weep at the greatness of His love and mercy every day.
