Maybe having a baby makes me think deeper...

Seriously, so many thoughts rushing through my head.  I've been reading Radical by David Platt along with Marla.  I can call her my friend.  I met her last January.  Anyway.

Did you know that there isn't a place in the Bible where it says to bow your head and pray to ask Jesus into your heart? 

I guess I did.  But I never really thought about it.  Jesus says "Come, follow me."  He tells us to give up everything for him.  E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Kids, husbands, parents, brothers, sisters, stuff.  Everything. 

Do I?  No.  Have I?  No.  Will I?  I really want to.

I want to live radically.  I want to be able to give up everything. 

Part of me thinks that if I'm willing, God just might call me out on that.  And then what? 

I'd really have to trust him. 

My heart and flesh are so weak. 

I can only do anything by the grace of God. 

Everyday, I realize more and more how I can't do anything without the grace and love of God in me to do the work through me. 

Because me, by myself?  Am selfish and prideful.

And that's why I need Him.


  1. I love this.

    Thank you for making me think deeper.

  2. Just started this book a week ago. LOVING it!

  3. I enjoyed your deep thoughts. I am convicted of many things. All the time. But it takes an Act of God to really get me to release them to the Lord. I am thinking I need to read this book..Radical.

  4. I love that you're reading Radical, too. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and making me think some more.


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
