For sometime now I have felt a heavy heart for sharing the gospel to those around me but it seems every time I stop myself by thinking "how do you do this without someone placing judgement?" Why is it we seem to talk ourselves out of telling people about Jesus? If you were to send me to another country, it would be much easier than the people God places around me in my everyday life. It again is my flesh is in war with my spirit. That is one of the reasons why I want to share it with you through my blog... it's less threatening. I have no idea who reads this but just maybe it impacts you to live a life for Christ. 
In 2 Corinthians 5:15  Christ died for us all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 
Once we have excepted this as truth in our lives it will change our worldly point of view. Your whole purpose of living is to transform from your own desires into what Christ desires for you.  You see we are all sinful and we need someone to save us,  our cups can never be filled with our worldly possessions and we can't carry our own burdens on our own strength... that is why God sent Jesus to save us.  This last week I had someone dear to me say " I have a beautiful house, I live in a beautiful state with great weather, I have a beautiful wife, I have a wonderful family, I have a strong stable job bringing in great income, but why does my life feel so empty... what am I missing?" You're missing GOD!! I want to SCREAM from the rooftops. Mark 8:36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?  
Our lives mean nothing without him, Christ was sent to reconcile our relationship with God. Once you truly believe this in your heart of hearts your eyes are now open to a different kind of living.  Once you lay your life down surrendering it all completely, dying within yourself, to being built anew. 2 Corinthians 5:17  If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.  Your life is now free as you lose your control to the one that loves you the most.. let him take your life to do what's best for his kingdom. Be a true sacrifice for God's plan, he has you right where he wants you. He has given everything for his good and his purpose. Once we have committed our lives we become his ambassadors to tell others of the good news. We are in the mission field as a mom, wife, co-worker, friend, neighbor, or a stranger passing by. Let's all make an impact to people around us .. our days are numbered and our time is running out to let more and more people know about Jesus. Who in your life has God placed that you can tell about Jesus?
This is one of my favorite songs.. doesn't matter how many times I hear it.. I get goosebumps every time!

I love that song! We have a singer at our church who has such an amazing voice and every time she sings that song, my eyes just well up with tears. I love the man's voice that sang that too. Music is so motivating, inspiring, and moving to me. Thanks for posting that! How are you feeling lately? Any updated belly shots?
