preparing to go, but willing to stay July 9, 2009

I remember a while back that one of my teammates from my BJ 2006 team told me…

“we must prepare to go and willing to stay… rather than preparing to stay and willing to go.” I took that to heart and have tried living a simple life knowing that i was willing to go, if and when God called. I am learning today that it’s much harder to go than i could ever imagine. there are many fears and many uncertainities ahead. But God is reminding me… “that this world has nothing for me…” and that he has complete control over my life. That HE alone is God. =)

I am constantly being humbled to know that our best ability to be given to God is our avaliability. that i cannot do ANYTHING to earn his love and grace. that HE ALONE is sufficient. ^_^
