That's it! That's the type of Christ-follower I want to be..., not just a good neighbor and friend, not just a good wife and mother, but someone who is making an impact on someones today and more importantly someones eternity. But how?
I believe it starts by me falling in love with Jesus all over again. Oh I've loved Jesus and I have never doubted that He loves me, never stopped serving Him. But to be in love with Jesus is something totally different. To once again treasure His word and have a desire to see what He has to say to me each and every day. To be able to look in the mirror and say with a smile, "I've got my joy back!"
That is my pursuit! That is my passion! I want to be that woman!
You could say..., "I'm a woman on a mission."
We closed with this song this morning by the Desperation Band entitled "Treasure". For a girl who loves the ocean, I can just visualize it in my mind:
Your breath is like rain
Your Word it sustains me
I've come to this place
With intentions of finding You
Your Truth is a lamp
Your Wisdom, my light
I'm seeking Your face
With intentions of finding You, finding You
I would run for a thousand years
If I knew every step would be getting me closer
I'd swim to the ocean floor
For my Lord is the Treasure
My Lord is the Treasure
The Bible says if we seek Him, we will find him. What's your treasure?
