take back the reigns, I've done it again.
"For everyone is salted with fire" Mark 9:49
I've let fiery seasoning scorch the beautiful salt of sacrifice within.
Even still, His salt is impenetrable and thats the beauty of His love.

" For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers neither height or depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

His seasoned salt abundant in our life can't be messed with! His unbounded love is the driving force that motivates our lives as well as those around us. With Him in our hearts the love can only be over abundant! If thats not motivation i dunno what is. Last night I pretty much confessed to Eric that I've been pretty durn unmotivated.. man what was I thinking. Without God existing as the center of my universe, I am nothing and this world is a whole lot of nothing. The world can only take me to new levels of meaningly trials and trivial conquests. For it all is temporary.

Jesus proclaimed how to be first in His meaningful world, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all". He calls us to serve as humble servants to everyone, and I can imagine that the greatest test of faith would be serving your enemies with as much love as you do you wife or parents. That would be crazy! Jesus came to serve the world with the Ultimate Job. "to give his life as ransom for many"

"' Go', Jesus said, 'your faith has healed you.'..." Mark 10:52

~Forever Forward~
