Growing my spiritual life: The urgency of my life


1 Corinthians 9:16 
You see, if I preach the good news, it’s nothing to brag about. This urgency, this necessity has been laid on me. In fact, if I were to stop sharing this good news, I’d be in big trouble. 

This Scripture had been on my mind because I feel that urgency to share God's word and love.

Not a moment goes by in my day when my thoughts don't turn to The Lord. 

I realize the responsibility of my calling. 

A calling I never expected... 

Social media has increased the reach of my work for God. 

I find myself compelled to share Scripture, minister to those who need hope in illness and more than anything: I share how God really does want us to know His heart.

It no longer matters to me that others think of me as that crazy Jesus lover. 

But it was uncomfortable becoming the person God made me to be. 

I was forced out of my comfort zone. 

I no longer fit in any of my circles. 

But I am compelled by a Greater Force to never be comfortable again. 

That's okay.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
