Serving Jesus: Uncomfortable and Addictive



This serving Jesus thing… well it can get quite UNCOMFORTABLE.  

Honestly it can.


There is no hidden agenda with Jesus. He puts it all out there from the beginning. .. “You must be willing to give up all to follow me.  “

This is an exclusive relationship, no room for my idols.





He is totally not interested in this copilot business

He asks that I relinquish control and give Him the wheel and get in the back…way back

I must surrender my will and accept His

I must die to myself so that I can live in Him

I must embrace suffering and make of my life a daily offering

 But even with all that I have to lose

I rejoice in all that I have gained

Because serving Jesus well it can get quite ADDICTIVE

Honestly it can.


He takes my yes

And does more with me than I could have imagined

He hears me when I pray

He sees my tears

And always reminds me that He is on my side

So there is NO NEED TO FEAR

I am constantly receiving confirmation of His love

He has provided beauty for my ashes

Redeemed my past and gave me 

A life that will last
