Dear friend, ………
So I’m about to do something ENORMOUS I DESPERATELY did NOT want to do. To pack up my special needs ministry doggies, theirs, the ministry’s, and my few belongings, and head next week into New York City for another season of streets ministry there. ………
What’s so incredibly surprising is that I AM SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED AND BLESSED AND THANKFUL now to be doing something I so very much didn’t want to do! So why, and how, the change?
When I denied myself, took up my little cross, and made the decision to submit myself to the Lord Jesus Christ and His instructions for this next big piece of my personal and ministry journey, the Lord not long afterward LED ME TO REPENTANCE about my BAD ATTITUDE and led me to have THE RIGHT ATTITUDE. A heart filled with love, humility, thanksgiving, and a desire to obey, honor, please, and serve Him in this next big step of faith forward.
When I repented for the wrong heart, God filled me with more of His Spirit and gave me the right heart – a heart not to please self but to continue dying to self and living FOR HIM!
Friend, submit to Jesus in ALL things with the RIGHT HEART ALL for THE GLORY OF GOD, AMEN!
“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23
