Friday’s Question

What do you want “more of” in your life?

What motivates you/me? What are we seeking?

Romans 12:1-2 biblegateway-com-logo

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Are my actions transforming me more into the person that God created me to be or are they making me grow stagnant?

What do I want more of from my life? 

I desire to do God’s will and grow in my knowledge of Him and grow in my willingness to serve His kingdom, but do I make conscious decisions to change my desires to His desires.  I may  have to live a little more modestly.  I may have to forego the self some so I’m able to give to others.

Philippians 1:21-23biblegateway-com-logo

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.

I know what I want more of out of my life.

Can I release all my humanness and trust that the Lord will create in me a heart of servant-hood?  Can I trust Him to provide me with all my physical needs and fill my emotional needs with peace and love so I can give it away?

I want more of HIM!

Proverbs 8:17 biblegateway-com-logo

I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

1 Chronicles 16:11biblegateway-com-logo

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
