I am known of by many, but known by few. I have several hundred “friends” on facebook, but most of them don’t know the names of my daughters. I am tempted to view success by the width of numeric equation, and yet I follow the One who gently dismissed the crowd for the sake of a core.
In deep conviction, I am returning to the refuge of the resurrected Christ as my only source of fulfillment. My identity is not found in what I do, but in who I am and Whose I am. I am resolved to put away the books and manuals on howtogrowabigchurch, and focus instead on the strength in weakness, multiplication by division, and the affirmation of the Father.
Though none go with me, still I will follow.
No turning back, no turning back.
Jesus, draw me close. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, and lead me to the life everlasting! Take me past the outer courts, and into the throne room of the Father… I want to go deeper in my faith, deeper in my understanding, deeper in my peace. In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen.
