Like the hub of this wheel has spokes leading from it, going in different directions, but each begins with the hub. Jesus is the center of my life. All the different things I am apart of and all that I do begins with Christ. And if they begin with Christ, they all point back to Christ.
Jesus is the foundation of all I do. I live for Him. Whatever I do, I base it on God's truths. I seek His wisdom and direction. I don't give opinions. I do give biblical advise. I don't always get it right, but I surely try. I want to be seen as a Christ follower, not because of what I do, but because of who I am - I am a child of the King! I am a co-heir with Christ!
I start my day, giving it to Christ, asking to be used by Him. I end my day, repenting of all I did not get right during the day and thanking Him for His grace and His mercy. I ask for God to come in and transform me so that the next day I can honor God in an even greater way.
I don't want people to not want to be in my presence because I am 'too holy.' I want to be able to connect with all people, but in the end, I must live for Christ.
I am not willing to compromise my beliefs. I am not willing to ease up on the truth, but I want to enter every space with love. I want all those who are in my presence, even if for a moment, to know there is something different. I can't give this love to anyone if I am not full of Christ. Really, what they have to experience to feel that is not me, but Christ. And I can't give what I don't have, so I want more and more of Christ. I want my steps to be ordered by Christ. I want to always be in a listening position so I can hear what my next step is; what my next move is; what my next statement should be.
