To Be the Revolution…

I lie on my bed, tears trickling down my cheeks, my mind reeling with questions. I feel so ashamed. Ashamed of every fiber of my existence, of what I claim to own. 

I cry. I pray. I ponder. My life, my actions must be in harmony… And I'm finding they don’t go deep enough… I feel ashamed and rightly so. 

Have I been living a lie all this time? 

My flesh denies the thought. Yet I believe it to be partially accurate, for if I was truly living, breathing, absorbing the words I speak, my life would be reflecting Christ more fully than it is today. I need a reset, a hard reset. And that, by God’s grace, I’m going to have. 

Away with a life of mediocrity. In with a life of revolution.

These are the things I want. These are the things I need. These are the things I crave. 

To be the revolution I want to see.

  3. Oh how I need that reset...now. My life is so very different from this time last year. But I can't be satisfied with how it is now. I want a hard reset. I'll pray for you my friend, pray for me.

  4. Thanks for sharing this, sister. I fear I've been living a lie too. Words are meaningless without corresponding action... Praise God we can hit 'reset', through His grace!

  5. Your phrase "the words I speak". oooh... the nothingness of words. What I write, I say, I preach, I listen too...not enough. I join the cry for deeper, far deeper. This is Revolution in me.

    Thanks Gles.

    1. Right, Nessa… So right. What we say is nothing. Who we are is everything.
