Do you ever wonder if you’re really okay?
Are you actually spiritually unbelievably passionate for the Lord or are you just a bit more than others?
My husband and I listened to a message by Francis Chan this week where he shared about this and I think we are both still rocked by it.
Am I actually okay? How willing am I? We live pretty simply, at least to me, but I do like my home. I like our new (to us) vehicle. I like our Hazelnut Vanilla Coffee we have every morning (had to go there).
Do you ever catch yourself wanting more?
Wanting that new vehicle? Wanting that new house? Wanting that dream vacation?
We are blessed to have an incredible church, that has touched revival, I believe that, and yet I ask myself. Am I okay?
How often do you sit around – not in a church building – wanting more Jesus? More Holy Spirit?
How often do you sit around wanting an opportunity to give something valuable of yours to someone else in need? I mean ya, we all want more JOY, but how much do we want to just give stuff, even our time, even our money for the Kingdom?
How often do you get on your knees and ask God, BEG HIM, to use you, to give you the courage to share His love, to share the Gospel, to feed the hungry, speak for the voiceless, to stand up for the orphan, to live and truly be exactly who He created us to be?
Are we okay?
Am I okay? Or am I just a warmer than some.
Sometimes we can get so caught up in the “everything” around us.
I have to be honest, I’m tempted to be like Smith Wigglesworth and not let the news in my house, it can be so depressing, full of fear, and not inspiring faith. Don’t get me wrong, the news has it’s place but I for one cannot dwell on negativity and fear based stories day in and day out.
I want to get my ear pressed to heaven, oh my GOODNESS I want to hear HIS VOICE.
Is this your cry too?
Luke 13:24-26 NKJV
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’
Are you okay?
