I watched a memorial service online this week. I did not attend the actual service several months ago because I’d cried through a few too many funerals in 2014, and no one would notice if I missed this one.
As I watched, I felt compelled to pick up a pen start scribbling down notes… because this was a life well lived, a life lived full throttle for Jesus that impacted many.
I watched as women stood up and spoke of her impact, her love, her passion.
I want to live a life like that.
So, this morning, I revisited my notes – wisdom scrawled on a post it:
- Moderation in Everything. Extreme Jesus
- A Kingdom mindset
- A life of daily miracles that purposes to see God’s goodness
- Might and Conviction
- Accepting that God’s cause is not always a successful one by earthly standards
- Remembering that God is not interested in success, only in our obedience
- Live full throttle for Jesus
I want to live a life like that, but I don’t know if I have the necessary DNA some days.
And then God reminds me. He reminds me as I am sitting at His feet seeking once again to find the strength to face my today.
Daughter, your job is to obey, not to provide. I am your Provider. You simply surrender to all that I AM.
Here I am to worship, Lord.
This year, my desire is to lift up holy hands and “Pray Big.” Want to join me? I’ve created a private “Pray Big” Facebook group for like-minded sisters to share their stories and surrender each one to our mountain-moving God in prayer. Let’s cry out to God together.
