About two weeks ago, during our staff retreat at the Cove in Asheville, God impacted my heart in a huge way. I can’t exactly put my finger on what is happeneing in my soul, but I feel a new work of God happening in my heart.
I feel a new sense of urgency in prayer and an increased passion for the ministry He has called me to. At the same time, I have a clearer understanding of my my brutally selfish nature. In opposition to it, I’m asking God to expand my capacity for service without recognition.
Some of what I’ve seen in my heart bothers me, but other parts give me great hope in the future. As I battle against my flesh, I’m praying that God will use this time to draw me even nearer to Himself. I’m praying that He will work through me in a way that earns glory only for Himself.
