Until the Holy Spirit does break us we might not awake. Avoid the flesh, avoid self-will. Let go. As long as you play God, even for yourself. Lay down your self-will. Be willing to be broken. It is the circumstance that finally brings us to the real strength we all require. The one person is out
there that will complete you and them; that which once was once yours is now His, after you do fully give away. Live for Him. Repent; submit your self-will to Him. Dictate to God how you are hoping, our stubborn will are in His control. All you want to take credit for is not yours; honest repentance is an act only he understands. We play God in life. Are we willing to lay it all down?
What do you have, what have you got your hands on that you’re willing to hand over to him to create, in your own being, a more malleable lump of clay to be shaped more into the likeness of His son? What does your stubborn will consider that is your personal ability, that no one can, or will, ever have the power to take from you? Let’s assure you: whatever is can be gone in a split moment. All our hopes, all our lofty self-opinion, all of our power and or talent. Grasp that gift;
take too much pride from whatever we think as ours, the talent He‘s put A finger on, prepare it for it’s demise. See, our self centeredness, our vain activities we use to only show off; that is has a bullseye on for His act of Love. Love sometimes means stripping away what you think is you, what what we believe makes us more than others. Be happy to hand it over, be willing to let what be a provision for the glory of God. A thing is only worth it’s joy is it’s succession; that.
A painting is a perpetual gift to all;
Even a cartoon, composes visual melody, a gesture., a thought…. Give it away.
Only then will it ever be ours.
