Life IN Him....

"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me." Galatians 2:20

The Lord has been reminding me lately what this verse is really about. Sometimes, actually most of the time, it is hard for me to lay down my desires and wants and plans and to allow my life to really be Christ's.

How easily I forget that He is my
all in all.
He is my everything.
Without Him, I simply would not be, I would not BE!

I start planning my day, my life as if it were my life... I gave my life to God and now it is His. When I gave my life to Him it was because He bought me with a very high price and I trusted Him that His ways were higher than my ways.

You see... I lived my life as if it were my own for 22 years and I ended up chasing the wind with only a shattered and empty heart to show for it all. Why do I so frequently take my life up from Him??? Did I forget that...

He is the author and creator or ALL things.

What am I to myself without You but a guide to my own downfall?" Saint Augustine

Father, You are my everything. Jesus, take my life. Take my life and seal me in You. Keep me in the shadow of Your beautiful wings. Don't let me wander from Your perfect path. Keep me in You Jesus.

For I truly only live in You, my King, My God!

"For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God." Colossians 3:3
