altogether Beautiful...

That is what my Jesus is to me. His voice is sweet, and His form is lovely. The most amazing, incomprehensible thing, though, is that I am altogether Beautiful to Him.

Name:

I am a daughter of the King. I am a friend of sinners. I am confident that nothing shall separate me from the love of God. I am seeking a heart after God's own heart. I am righteous in Jesus Christ, apart from the works of the law. I am not ashamed of the Gospel.

but for Christ

let me not be bold, but for Christ.
let me not be good, but for Christ.
let me not care, but for Christ.
let me not love, but for Christ.
let me not give, but for Christ.
let me not be virtuous, but for Christ.
let me not laugh, but for Christ.
let me not smile, but for Christ!
let me not be happy, but for Christ!
let me not be angry, but for Christ.
let me not be jealous, but for Christ.
let me not sing, but for Christ.
let me not cry, but for Christ.
let me not dance, but for Christ only!
let me not study, but for Christ.
let me not seek wisdom, but for Christ.
let me not make friends, but for Christ.
let me not speak, but for Christ.
let me not keep silent, but for Christ.
let me not shout, but for Christ!
let me not work, but for Christ.
let me not rest, but in Christ.
let me not share, but for Christ.
let me not hope, but in Christ.
let me not worship, but for Christ.
let me not know, but Christ.
let me not be known, but Christ.
let me not be known, but of Christ.
let me not be seen, but Christ.
let me pray, for the Father Himself loveth me.
let me not live, but for Christ.
let me not breath, but for Christ.
let me not be, but for Christ.
In Christ alone I live, and breathe, and have my being.



I was driving home yesterday evening and just began to speak to God and to enjoy His fellowship. This prayer just came out- let me not be bold, O God, but for Christ! Then I considered what that meant and began to pray and let the Spirit flow through. I realized that all character is void but for Christ- except when for Christ, and in Him and through Him. Eternal value is stripped of anything I do or am- but for Christ. The prayer became intense, God doesn't mind it that I'm intense- it is by Him and for Him! Worship flowed through my heart as I prayed and I ended up singing praises to Him the rest of the way home. Now why do I ever turn on my radio?

Why do you turn on your Radio?
How am I suppose to know what goes on in your head. But is it becuase you have to do something else besides put on makeup in your car, Or does it help you drive faster:)
