letting go



All my dreams, all my plans, all my wants. I'm giving up on them. I'm letting them go. They're slipping away like water through my hands. I want to become the kind of person who doesn't care what others think, but only what God thinks. I want God to be on my mind all the time. 

Jesus died for me. He gave up everything for me. Shouldn't I be willing to give up my life for Him? 

God is so amazing. So powerful. I watch the water stream over rocks in our creek. I hear birds wake me up every morning. I feel soil as I plant seeds for our garden. The things God makes are astounding. Who would've thought of such things? My mind can't comprehend them all. 

But what I find most striking is how God changes lives. How He's changing lives. Endless joy is found in Christ, and in Christ only. 

"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double edged sword, piecing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." HEBREWS 4:12

  2. I absolutely love the blog design! The title sizing is a little big for my liking, but I love the header/background. Did you design it yourself? This is a really good post too!

  4. Love it! I know that I'm willing to die for Christ! I'm kinda scared because of all the stories of missionaries we used to know who got shot but I know I'm willing to die. Thanks for posting. :)
