Currently... Dying To Self

You know how we talk about starting fresh every day, taking up our cross, putting our selfishness aside and following Jesus? Yeah, That. Over the past week it has taken on a totally different meaning. Yes, I've felt like I've done this in the past, but there's always something that I've held onto for my own selfish reasons not even realizing that it's not mine to hold onto. It's ALL God! It's ALL about God! All of it! Lord, I pray that you will reveal the areas where I am selfish, help me to be a converted saint & not a convicted sinner, help me, my hubs & my children to hear from you like we never have before & most of all may we bring you glory in it all and lead people to you.

"There's no heart too hard for God" ~Dan Baumann

"I'd rather move forward and follow God than stand back with my insecurities" 
 ~Dan Baumann

"He is not our Savior unless He is first our Lord." ~ Fred Markert

The word "GO" is said 6000 times in the bible
