If I was living selflessly I would see soccer training as an opportunity to tell people about Jesus.

If I was living selflessly I would use breaks at UNI to catch up with friends from my course and share Jesus with them.

If I was living selflessly I would, when I could, spend more time with older members of my family who don’t know Christ.

If I was living selflessly I would get over pride and forgive.

If I was living selflessly I would not just assume people are ok in their faith and take more time to encourage.

If I was living selflessly I would encourage people at work…even though it’s a christian school people are often spiritually dry.

If I was living selflessly I would pray more for people.

If I was living selflessly I would get offended less.

If I was living selflessly I would prioritise any time spent with someone who doesn’t know Jesus.

If I was living selflessly I was see 21sts and weddings and engagement parties and bridal showers as opportunities to have good conversations with people who I know who were once walking with God.

If I was living selflessly I would thank people more for the encouragement they are in my life.

If I was living selflessly I would be the one to say hi and ‘how are you?’┬áto a familiar face at the mall or shops instead of pretending I didn’t see them cause I was in a rush.

If I was living selflessly I would answer the phone even if it rung at an inconvenient time.

If I was living selflessly I would meet new people at church instead of standing in the security and safety of friends.

If I was living selflessly I wouldn’t mind if my plans were interrupted by a need.

If I was living selflessly I would be less self-conscious and more ‘other’-conscious.

If I was living selflessly I wouldn’t let fear stop me…putting obedience before comfort.

If I was living selflessly I would rely more on His Spirit to do so rather than trying in vain in my own strength.

Jesus make me more like you by the work of Your Spirit.

‘all i need’

We say “Jesus is all I need”, “Jesus is more than enough”, but it’s more like we’re trying to convince ourselves than actually rejoicing in Him. Instead of accepting this, we should make it our top priority to know Him…to be in love. Set a date. Dance. Smile. Laugh. Pray. Be serious. Read His Words. Ask where He wants to take “you and Him”. If He doesn’t tell you but still wants you, just trust. Go on the adventure. Run the race.

fear of God

One day we will stand before God. We will give an account.

We will have nothing…take nothing with us from this earth.

Our work will be finished.

In an instant.

But for now…in this day we should live ready for that moment.

Fear of God is the facilitator of action.

We should know that fear of God had more power than fear of man.

Fear of man will hold us back but if we fear God we WILL act.

It will grow as we allow God to be bigger in us than we are in ourselves.

There is something quite exhilarating about running in the rain.

Your legs feel stronger. Less tired as there is less heat. You can run further.

It doesn’t matter that your hair is smeared to your face. It is refreshing. Doesn’t feel as much like exercise. But it is more slippery so you have to be more alert with where you place each step.

I want to run this faith running in the rain. Don’t want to be dry or struggling in the heat…aware of my own efforts.

Running in the rain you focus less on your effort and more on the act of running. Focus. Pace. Ease.

There is something quite exhilarating about running in the rain…

Come back now

Now, now come back inside,

enough is enough little heart of mine.

You must keep safe in the Hands you know.

In this place learn to grow.

Loosen your grip.

Don’t hold on so tight.

Don’t chase after your own.

Come back now, back inside.

Don’t be enticed by an idea.

You snuck a peak but your gaze got caught.

Turn away now, little heart,

Look that way no more.

Now is not the time.

Be still in peace again,

In a guarded place you forgot.

Be filled with His life again.

It is not where you were looking.

Good to have you back. I was starting to worry.
