You know....
it's so easy to fall into the trap of self-pity.

Jesus is my Saviour, I am covered by His blood,

So be gone!, I say to this nasty cloud of despair and depression that I have been allowing to hang over my head, envelope me like a cloud, and sink me to my knees.

But yes, to my knees this cloud has brought me to,
and so my resolve remains and I must not give in...
I must keep going, until I am truly one with Jesus, and truly know Him and call Him Friend.
Wow, He is the one in who I must rely upon.

You know what's a relief?
He does not give up on us.

And He does not force us to obey Him:

" *IF* anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself..."
Luke 9:23

It's my choice to obey Him... yes, I am saved, so I know where I'm going to go... but how about while I'm here on earth? Will I truly live for Him and know Him NOW?

Yeah, it HURTS when He asks me to let go of a friend, and a friend leaves my life for the sake of spending time with Him (more on that later.)

I think this is a beautiful quote:
"But if I obey Jesus Christ in the seemingly small circumstances of life, they become pinholes through which I see the face of God. Then, when I stand face to face with God, I will discover that through my obedience thousands were blessed...If I obey Jesus Christ, the redemption of God will flow through me to the lives of others, because behind the deed of obedience is the reality of Almighty God."
-Oswald Chambers

Btw, I changed my profile, (the bio).

It is time to lay it all aside, each and every day. For Him.
