Love Regardless


He has chosen and called you to this specific place with a specific agenda. You have been called out of the safe Christian diet to live and cultivate life in your personal Ninevah. Thrive there. Love regardless. Tend to the lost regardless. Press on regardless. Give no regard to the lies the enemy will throw at you. Persevere. Instead of seeing the obstacles, look for the opportunity in serving and giving your very life like that of Christ. Sacrifice and be blessed. Let go of entitlement and pursue God. Share Him among these people. Rise to the challenge. Teach your children to be missionaries among these people. This is an opportunity He has trustingly placed into your hands. Live out who you say He is. 
I'll see you at the finish line.

Stephanie:

You are such a gifted writer, and the Holy Spirit inevitably speaks to me through your writings!

The part of this blog that touched me (well...all of it did...really) most was "Let go of entitlement and pursue God." I'm in such a weird place in my walk right now. It seems as if there is a place in my heart that is not totally surrendered to God. He's asking me to let Him have it all. He's asking me to want Him more than I want anything else, ie: serving in a ministry that He Himself gave me a desire and passion to serve in. There is joy in surrender, I know, but it's not easy. God gave up His most precious Son, so why wouldn't I surrender what He's asking me to?

much love,
susan
