I was reading in John 3 this morning and the statement that John the Baptist made really impacted me!
27To this John replied, "A man can receive only what is given him from heaven. 28You yourselves can testify that I said, 'I am not the Christ[j] but am sent ahead of him.' 29The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. 30He must become greater; I must become less.
I want to become less so that God can become greater!!! I have finally got back into my morning "quiet time" routine and it is so refreshing. I attended a kids retreat a couple of weeks ago and God really touched me. He renewed my love for Him and time spent with Him. I needed to repent for being lazy and complacent. Plus, life really sucks when I am not in right relationship with God. He is so awesome and loves me so much that I am stupid not to spend time with Him and let Him show me what He has for me everyday. So, my quest is to continue to spend time with Him and grow in Him. To become less so that He can become more in my life.
The kids retreat really stirred my desire to get involved in ministry again. Last night I got to help our church prepare for VBS. Although I will not be able to be a volunteer the week of VBS, I was so glad to be of some service! It made me sad that I won't be able to volunteer since my heart really wants to be there but I am praying that God will make a way in the years to come!!
Thank you Father God for loving me so much. Thank you for sending Jesus to die so that I may have life and have it to the full. I desire more of You!
