Running for God isn't just a walk in the park. There's an annoying guy who throws all he can into your path, hurdles to jump, obstacles to sidestep, and everything else he can get his hands on.
It sucks when you feel like you have to do everything youself. It sucks when it feels like everything out there just wants a piece of you, and it feels like there is no refuge, no hope, no end.
My wish is to see God glorified everywhere I go. I wish to see people passionate about serving and motivated to to the best for our awesome God. I wish to see multitudes of people consumed by the Holy Spirit, and worshipping, glorifying and drawing closer to God. I am a mere servant. God is the author, the architect, the artist.
This is what motivates me. It is my hope that people share this plea, this hope, this wish. I hope I can push through all the hard and painful times, because there is an end to this tunnel, however dark and deep it may feel.
Life is full of ups and downs.... peaks and troughs, hills and valleys. But the thing we must not forget and always cling onto is that behind everything that is going on, when all is said and done, God is in control and He is working His purposes in us.
I was really moved by a recent talk I heard in the past week. The speaker was talking about relationships, but he said something about life in general which has become my motivation: "Run hard for Jesus." Nothing else matters more. All the money, all the posessions, everything in this world... is nothing compared to God, His greatness, His compassion, His love. If our God matches this description, which He does, how can anything else matter more that living to give Him the ultimate glory?
