In Love W.I.T.H. Jesus.
Karen chose the quote for us to write about this week:
But F.A.T. disciples?
It makes sense though.
I believe I am faithful. In fact, I think I'm pretty loyal. For the past 15 years or so, I've grown in my walk of faith. The more I study God's Word, the more I'm amazed by His love. Why would He send His Son to die for me when I don't deserve it?
But He did and I'm so grateful for His grace and mercy.
And in response ...I'm faithful.
I want to be available. I often pray that God would open the eyes of my heart to see what He has for me this day. You see, I find that some of the interruptions in my day are actually Divine appointments. But if I'm not available, I'd miss them. I have to admit I've probably missed many of His appointments but my desire is to be available.
I've always wanted to be a life long learner. I remember my pastor talking about this and how important it is. None of us has arrived and there's always something new to learn. In my walk of faith, I've got a life time to learn. I'm so thankful that God hasn't given up on me as some things take me a long time to learn.
I'm finding that TRUST is something that I learn all too slowly. And it often takes trials and testing for me to have to depend on the Lord. But through it all, I believe I am learning. He is sovereign and in control of ALL things.
So I guess I must admit that I want to be a F.A.T. disciple. I never thought I'd want to be a FAT anything but this I can strive for.
I also find that I do best teaching others things that I struggle with too. I need to be accountable and that's a very good thing.
How about you? Do you want to be a F.A.T. disciple?
Blessings and love,
