I found this quote nestled in the corner of my bible this morning. I wrote it there the summer of my eighth grade year. It was the same year that I stood in the bathroom and said “Alright God. From this moment on its me and you. Let’s do this!” That was the turning point in my story.
My bible is rough around the edges, faded and torn. I thought about buying another one so that I didn’t have to carry this old falling apart one but then I started to think about my journey with this book and I just couldn’t replace it. My faith has been a journey of letting go of what I am for what I am becoming. Not as poetic as it might sound.
While visiting with a friend yesterday (hey Boo!!) I realized that things like fear, social rejection, and pride hold me back. Good thing God doesn’t let that stuff stand in the way. I can just picture it now, God calling in a demolition team to take out my pride.
When I read that faded quote on the cover of my falling apart bible it makes me smile because my heart belongs God. It’s awsome..to say the least.
