Today I spoke at a church, and I had a couple special guests with me who helped me with my presentation. These two people, over the past couple days, have challenged me so much in the area of prayer. They embody the boldness that I desire to have to pray for and with people for big things. They live their lives with deep love and compassion. I looked at my own life and wondered, “Do I look for opportunities every day to pray with people? Do I respond to those nudges? Am I selfless in my attitude toward others?” I would probably say that I don’t and I’m not always. However, I want that to change. Their genuine hearts call me to that.
This isn’t a super long post, but it is an affirmation from my heart that I will press into this more deeply. I want to be bold in every aspect of my life, not just in some. I don’t want to talk a good talk and not walk the walk with the people around me, feeling their pain, and carrying them to the Father. Each day I see more and more the selfishness inside of me that needs to die. I want to be humble and compassionate, selfless and loving. And I want to be faithful, as God has been faithful to me.
