I let the photos I blog & reblog speak for me.
Oh, please, go ahead and ask me things.
“Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.” — Galatians 1:10 (NLT)
HOW CONVICTING IS THAT? I so desperately want to be able to say that this is how I live, but I would be lying to not only myself and God, but I would be lying to everyone else in the world, too. How often do I worry about the fact that I don’t “have a real job” and how OTHERS view that fact about me? How often do I worry about how much I weigh? About what my clothes look like? How often do I worry about saying the right thing? How often do I worry about letting people down, not meeting expectations, and revealing myself as someone they didn’t think I was? Goodness, I could make this list go on and on and on if I so desired, but that would just be word vomit.
Seriously, if you’re loving these random KLFJHGLDKFGH moments I keep going through, you’ll love the rest of this post. So please, click “READ MORE”.
This morning I was challenged by something I read in Francis Chan’s book, Forgotten God. It was the last sentence of the opening paragraph of the chapter I was reading, and the sentence was as follows:
It’s safer to commit to following Him someday instead of this day.
The title of the chapter was, ”Forget His Will for Your Life!” And to be honest, I was a little hesitant as to where Chan was going to go with that. Isn’t the entire point of our life to do His will? Well, yes, it is. But, the thing we are doing instead, is holding off on doing it. I’ll add a “read more” section now, so that I don’t take over your dashboard.
If you’re ever thinking about being a husband, or are a husband, or interested in knowing what a Christian husband should be like check this out! It’s worth your time.
I am not the kind of person to reblog any sort of video, let alone a 47 minute long message. But, Francis Chan makes a lot of very good points in this, and if you have the time, I would highly recommend watching this. Although this is geared toward husbands, as a daughter of Christ, I found this very interesting. Also, if you aren’t already, you should probably be following the gentleman that I reblogged this from. He will certainly challenge your relationship with Christ.
