Matthew 16:25 “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.”
Philippians 1:21: “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
Matthew 16:24: “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”
I leave in just two days to embark on the journey of a lifetime. No doubt it will be very hard and challenging at times but there is also no doubt that it will be very rewarding as well. My goal is to live and die at the same time.
To die to my flesh and serve those around me to the fullest but to live in amazing community and solid, transparent communication too.
To die to my desired comforts and put myself in a place where I have no other choice but to trust Papa God. Yet, living in new experiences and learning from those around me and the culture I am immersed in.
To die to my definition of love and love the way Christ does, with no string attached, and unconditionally. Although, knowing that loving like that is truly life itself because we are learning how to be just like Jesus.
To die to the idea of “quitting” at any moment because Christ never quite on me and to live knowing that anything I need comes from the Father of lights!
People keep asking me if I’m ready. I am and there is only one way to know for sure as well.
