Dying to Self

When we are in the process of dying to self... its difficult. Bittersweet, and painful. When He says to pick up your cross... let me tell you it can be heavy. But His burden IS light and His yoke IS easy. I am learning that I have no strength and no amount of intellect of my own, nothing I can do can earn His grace - But His grace, IS sufficient. I want to be completely emptied of these things in my heart, my mind that are not of You, that You might fill me to overflowing and I would be so hidden in You, that nothing of me would survive. I just want to be with You Jesus, nothing of this world compares to your presence, to your great Love, and Mercy... nothing. I just want to be at your feet, 24/7. Help me get there Lord!

  1. God is really telling me something tonight that I have probably heard once before... but I am realizing that when something "hurts" its probably something that needs to die. I am thankful for that "hurt".. if something gets hurt enough, it eventually dies. So God I am so thankful, so thankful for realizing this tonight for the pain and the suffering that I have endured because it is for my own deliverance... thank you so much Father!
