All That is Within Me


If you are like me and have an iPhone, you've probably spent the last couple days trying to figure out all the updates. If you have more than one Apple device, such as an iPad, you've spent even more time updating it as well. Or maybe that's on your to-do list for today (or tomorrow). It's not a quick update, it takes a fair amount of time; then once you update, you've got to reset a few things.

So, that got me to thinking, have I spent the same amount of time alone with God, reading His Word, reaching out to other believers, or witnessing to the lost? I must confess, my answer would have to be "no." God loves us so much, He rejoices when we call on Him, when we reach out to Him in prayer, and when we meditate on His Word. He's so patient and so full of grace.

I keep thinking back to the scripture: Deuteronomy 6:5 - Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. All means completely, entirely; for me that means with everything that is within me. God doesn't call me to be perfect but He does want me to be completely surrendered to Him and be willing to do whatever He says do. Now that's scary but I'm am well able with His help. With Him, I can do ALL things (Romans 8:28) and that means I can live out Deuteronomy 6:5!

Are you willing to do the same?!*

Be blessed and be a blessing!
