I wrote about loneliness the other day. Then I walked by our bedroom mirror and stopped.
Ann Voskamp – she offers these free printables. I put them up in May – to breath life into my summer.
But sometimes you don’t even see what’s right in front of you. Every day.
The poster, smack dab in the middle of my mirror, I read it.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24
Unless it dies….it remains alone.
Death to self actually brings new life. It’s an upside down way to live.
We bear fruit —->not by doing but through abiding.
His life – our bodies. His Spirit merged with ours. His hands reaching out through ours.
What if I truly honor God by living fully today? Isn’t today all we really have?
You do what you know to do today. Because even the smallest moments lived for Him and through Him make a life worth living.
Until we die to living for ourselves, we are barren in the harvest fields of Christ. Our kingdoms must be conquered, that His kingdom may come down. It’s what we really need, after all.
