Dear friend,

When I asked a young woman if she would like to do something, she said she wanted to pray about it. At first, I was taken aback because I had expected and hoped she would immediately say yes in response to my question. Then I realized how absolutely wonderful, and refreshing, her response was! Just a day earlier I had heard someone describe big plans for the future without taking the Lord into account. Now I was hearing someone say she didn’t want to do something even small without the Lord leading the way.

This, friend, is that to which I aspire. To live utterly surrendered to the Spirit of Christ leading the way day in and day out. The Lord Jesus Christ purchased His followers with the price of His blood shed on the cross for us to pay the punishment for our sins. We who believe in Christ as Lord and Savior BELONG TO HIM. He is Lord, God, master, and, as such, is the one to whom we need to submit our hearts and lives each and every day – and FOREVER.

Are you and I fully surrendered to Christ? Do we seek the Lord continually? Do we pray day and night? Do we desire to know and fulfill His will for us in big matters and even in small ones? Is our heart’s cry to be totally devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ? Oh, may this be so!

I encourage you if you haven’t already to commit your whole heart and life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Not just in words. But in actions. And, most assuredly, in prayer!

Love & blessings,


“For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Cor. 6:20
