I am reading the book Follow Me by David Platt. Another one of those books that rocks me to my core.
But what does follow me really mean?
~Every moment of every day.
~Death to pride
~Death to ego
~Completely aware of His presence.
~Not a spectator.
~Not a consumer.
~Denial of earthly pleasures.
~Willing to follow, to the deep dark places.
~Give up my family?
~Death to self.
~Refusing to settle for anything less than the best for Him.
It took me 37 years to find my passion. My first mission trip to Haiti was almost 2 years ago and I cannot even fathom my life without Haiti now.
I wake up thinking about it.
Throughout the day I sing songs in creole.
I go to sleep praying for the people there. So many have touched my heart and if it wasnt for the stirring of His spirit to go, my life would be completely different.
I will take up my cross each day, knowing that it looks different each day to do that, and trust you to be my guide.
