All of You (I Want Your Help continued...)

So, when I consider that God wants "all of me", I am humbled...confused...then terrified...Seriously though, I am humbled to think that God wants anything to do with me whatsoever. Who am I?

Actually, I can answer that one quite succinctly: I am a child of God. That is who I am. My name is MistiPearl. I do this and I do that, but who I am is in Christ Jesus and all that He has done for me.

So, when I engage in a conversation with my God, my Maker, my Saviour, and He says He wants "all of me", I am humbled. The reason I am a little "confused" is because I don't know what more I can give to Him, nothing is jumping out at me at the moment, which leads to the "terrified" emotion. You see, I know that God knows me better than I know myself and if He is calling me to give Him my all and I thought I was pretty much doing that, well...that would mean that He is going to take me further and deeper into knowing more of Him...and more of me. The more of Him part is not so bad. His character is consistent, I know He loves me, I know that the plans He has for me are plans to prosper me and not to harm me, I know God is Good - all the time. It is the going futher and deeper into me that terrifies me because at this point, I know that I fall very short of the Glory of God and facing that is always difficult. That being said, I am willing. Like many, I have come to the point in my walk with God that anything He asks of me I know is for the better and even though I do not always understand His ways, I can trust Him. What God has for us is far better than we could have asked for or imagined! We just have to be willing. Willing to let Him take us though the refining fire to remove the impurities and release us to be all that He intended us to be.
Dear God in heaven, WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!

All of you.

I am willing, take all of me, I am yours. Show me Your way.

But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.~Isaiah 43:1

When considering how God wants all of me, I must realize that I am in a relationship with Him. Hopefully, that relationship is becoming more and more intimate on a daily basis. So, I try to talk with God about everything. Especially, things that affect who I am, how I treat others, and how I view the world. Great posts!

Hello Bud,
Thank you for your comment! I love how you worded your thought, "that relationship is becoming more and more intimate on a daily basis." That is it exactly, isn't it!?

They Did Not Realize
