Phil 3:10 " I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing i His sufferings, becoming like HIm in His death, and so , somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead."
I am no great and couragous spirit of old. I am a house wife. I get hung up on dirty kitchens and messy kids. Please hear that I am not saying I am not willing but a Spiritual sword in the hand of a tired, unkept, apron wearing women seems rediculous and yet so much like the Jehovah I know. How could this greatness of power and fellowship have anything to do with me.
I love that GOd has always used what seems rediculous. A prostitute in the Line of Jesus' ancestry. A legacy of Faith. I want to see the eternal in my dailey life. I want to recognize the choice that will matter forever. There was something in Isreal in those days that made Rahab want what they had. I want to live like that! Help me to put off what I see right before me to die to my self and chose what matters. Those things display something of Christ through me.
Lord help me to keep laying it down. Myself, my wants, my selfishness, my desires, my hopes, my plans, my heart, my loves, my fears and insecurities. Help me to suffer what matters, because this world is filled with suffering I pray that I would spend mine on what cannot be stolen or taken from me. I want to experience Jesus more and more everyday. Lord lastly please help my right hand pay no mind to what the left is doing, that I may not grow proud and shame us both. Amen!
