However, I consider my life worth nothing to me;
my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me
—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
~ Acts 20:24
I have been thinking about this journey, how I feel like I have struggled with one obstacle after another. I’ve looked at those obstacles from a selfish perspective, as though I am the only one that matters in this journey towards a healthy body.
While reading my Bible this morning, this verse really stood out to me. See, this journey is not really about me. I’ve said from the beginning, this journey is so that I can better fulfill God’s call for my life. However, as the obstacles have popped up, I have reacted selfishly.
This verse helped me refocus on the TRUTH. The only task that the Lord Jesus has given me is to testify, spread the Gospel. And, so, like I said in my post last night, even this stubborn injury will be used for his glory!
I am often heard saying, God’s got this, too! And, he has this injury, and this whole journey, too. As long as I let him have them.
Heavenly Father, I am surrendering this injury and all that has gone with it to you. My call is to spread the Gospel, and Father, I want nothing more than to do that. I ask you, Father, to use every piece of this for your glory, allow others to see YOU in me. Let my journey be a testimony of your love, grace, and mercy. In Jesus’ name, Amen
