I fear He speaks more often than I listen. My inability to slow down eliminates my ability to walk by His side. The foolishness I possess when I try to get ahead of Him. I want to live a life that never looks back and is continually moving forward, but may I never confuse always moving forward with wandering aimlessly. I desire to be at the epicenter of His will so that when He moves I may feel His tremblings. That His whisper would be a roar in the chambers of my heart.
If only I would find myself being moved by His hand. That His hand may guide me in the direction of His will, and that I would find my life in the midst of His story. May His strength permeate every fiber of my being so that I might stand against adversity. If only His power would manifest itself in my life so that I would be able to withstand the attacks of the enemy.
I fear comfort and I despise easy. The Great Teacher never taught us that it would be comfortable, or easy, rather He taught us that the adventure of learning from Him, living for Him, and following Him would actually be uncomfortable and difficult, but in the end it would be so worth it. I want to know Him more, I want to hear Him more. I can only pray that all of us would know Him more today than we did yesterday.
