Glory moments have nothing to do with my abilities, only my dedication to staying close to Jesus. Life is about the grind moments! Pointing us toward our Savior! Thank you for putting it this way. 🙂 Lori Jantzi April 11, 2016 at 9:00 pm Thank you Michelle! Acts of Obedience and Staying Close to Jesus. Awesome! 🙂 Cristina Williams April 13, 2016 at 1:35 pm This reminds me of when I first married Nick. I brought with me a lot of material things that could not fit in his bachelor pad I moved into. We found a storage facility close by our apartment. It took almost five years of surrendering, but through each of those years I stripped fears about and idolatry of many things. I went from having a decent-sized storage unit to now only using small storage closets attached to any given apartment we rent. It was a difficult process. Yet God met me before, during, and after any step of obedience He called me to in that area of surrendering earthly treasures for His eternal treasures. It’s been so freeing not to have to carry all of the extra stuff around, not only in the physical sense, also in the emotional and spiritual sense. It had such a hold on me. We also freed up that extra money each month, which adds up fast. It’s easy to give away things we don’t like or aren’t using anymore. It’s another thing to give up things we love or think we might use again. I’m now much more aware when the “I don’t want to let go” or “What will happen if” feelings rise up inside of me. I have to truly examine my heart and ask myself why. I pray I only hold onto Jesus and only concern myself with what I look like to God! Cristina Williams April 13, 2016 at 1:38 pm I loved that too! Society often paints the picture of “glory” moments being about the one who achieved something. I’ve thought that way before too. May we remember we did not “earn” those moments and all the glory goes to the One who is our everything!
