Can you feel the wind blowing and hear all those birds singing?

Can you smell and taste the vanilla coffee?  Can you see the great big smile on my face?

Oswald Chambers says:  One life totally devoted to God is of more value to Him than one hundred lives which have been simply awakened by His Spirit.

How amazing it is to know believers who are totally devoted to God.

Their lives, their breathing in and out is given over to their God devotion.  They are far from perfect. They make mistakes just like God’s followers in the Bible.  When things happen they go to their God source, dust themselves off and just keep on going. (Like the Ever Ready Battery Bunny)

Those who have been simply awakened (Maybe people who believe from a distance or people who are just beginning their journey toward their personal God relationship.) are watching the examples of God’s totally devoted followers.

Consider the people of your past and the people you are surrounded by right now.  Seek out “the life totally devoted to God” and ponder on how they live, how they breathe in and out their devotion to God.  The devoted followers should show God’s love…..joy…..peace…..patience……kindness……goodness…….faithfulness……and self-control which are written in the book of Galatians 5 verse 22.  And they will also live the Love chapter 1 Corinthians 13.

I have been blessed to watch the God journey of a dear friend.  One day at a time, one step at a time, questions here, problems there, stepping closer, learning, struggling with health issues, sharing, dealing with life’s daily struggles at work and with family and friends, slowly moving forward.  This devoted follower IS making a huge impact.

 

Live a life totally devoted to God?  Now that’s a great challenge.

 

Have a great day.  deb
