And you could choose to remember one thing,
Or one person,
One thing only,
What or who would it be?
Today I felt that God was calling me to (internally) sacrifice, to give up, to surrender,
to let go of, to say goodbye to, the two people I love the most in this world.
I was filled with so much grief, I love them so so much.
So many happy memories, endearing moments…
Oh Lord, anything but them,
They are so precious to me 🙁
My heart is breaking even at the thought of losing them
But -I must (for Gods spirit in me compels me)
And I will- choose,
Following Jesus will cost me my life, every last piece of it.
and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests
and the teachers of the law, and he must be killed
and on the third day be raised to life.”
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple
must deny themselves and take up their cross daily
and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life
will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me
will save it.
(Luke 9:22-24 NIV)
