"Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it." Ezra 10:4 • There’s times where I don’t realize how blessed I am and how fortunate I am to have a God that loves and forgives and is merciful to me, even when I don’t deserve it. There are times when I feel like I know what’s best for me and when I feel like I am the best person to manage my life. Every time I attempt this though, I fail miserably. God is the best manager for my life. He always has been and he always will be. Because he has a plan for my life that is far greater than any I could come up with on my own. So because he knows my heart, because he loves me, because he gave up everything for me, there is nothing preventing me from taking up my cross and following the one he sent, the one that died for me. God never said it was going to easy, but he promised that it would be worth it. • "Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.’" Luke 9:23 • I lay down my life and take up my cross, Jesus. For You are my God, whatever the cost, Jesus.
