I don’t want religion, I want you, God.

God,

How can I be more like you?  I don’t want to try so hard to be Christian.  I just want you to transform me.  I want to give without expecting anything in return.  I want to forgive without a second thought.  I want to let you lead me because you know me better than I know myself.  I want to be me and nobody else.  I want to love people the right way.  I want to stop talking so much about the way things should be and just let them be that way.  I want to give it all up to you.  I don’t want religion, I want a life like Christ.  I want to see myself through your eyes and not the eyes of anyone else or even my own because those eyes can lie and they can deceive.  I want to just let you love me and heal me.  I want the truth, which is only found in you.  I want to show the world who you are and what you stand for because you are love and we are surrounded by false idols and lies everyday when we know in our hearts what is right, we just don’t have the eyes to see it.  But every now and then we see a glimmer of what is true and we know it.  Just a little piece of that hope shining through the darkness.  That’s what I hunger for.  More of that; more of you.  Open my eyes everyday because I so easily fall asleep or get distracted.  Thank you for the ones who hunger for this to.  To know something real and true.  To be fulfilled in the only way we can truly be.  It’s so simple so why so hard?  Surrender everyday and we’ll find life.  For some it’s harder than others.  We have grown up different ways with different experiences but we all want the same thing, we just don’t know how to let go and receive it.  It seems so easy so why so hard?  It’s a transformation, but one that leads to absolute freedom.  That is what I want.

True love is the burden that will carry us back home
I wanted to share one of my favorite songs, which has been very powerful in my life.  Ulysses by Josh Garrels.  For the times when we feel lost, overwhelmed, or just unsure of our next move, we always know the sun will rise in the morning and the true love of God will always carry us on.  To me,

City on a hilltop
Be confident in who who were made to be and don't hide the light you've been given!  "You are the light of the world - like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket.  Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in

Are you an introvert?
  How do you process?  This is the biggest difference between introverts and extroverts.  Do you process things internally or verbally?  Yes, we all do a little of both but most people usually lean to one of the two sides. I know that I am more of an introvert and it's just recently th

Living by the Spirit
"For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters.  But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature.  Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love." - Galatians 5:13 (NLT) I love the book of Galatians.  I am reading through it again right now for the 3rd

Seeking Freedom
If I asked you if you'd rather be free or bound up, what would you say?  If you had the choice to be completely yourself, free from persecution in any way OR tied down and burdened under a law, what would be your answer?  This seems pretty obvious, right?  So why is this decision so hard for us t
