Saturday, July 2: The Conditions of Discipleship

“Our Lord never proclaimed a cause— He proclaimed personal devotion, motivated by love, to Himself.”  — My Utmost For His Highest

we all have sustainability issues— we find it difficult to endure, to sustain anything in the long term.  why?  because we are confused about our priorities.

as much as i want to please my Lord with an honest personal devotion that is consistently ablaze all through my days, it is quite embarrassing to admit that even my spirituality has its seasons.   at the moment, it does feel like winter.

life has suddenly come to a standstill.  days are difficult, dry, cold, and lonely.  i keep praying that the disinterest and disenchantment quickly go away but it isn’t God’s will.  i am left to wait and live the cycle through.

“Whenever the Holy Spirit sees an opportunity to glorify Jesus through you, He will take your entire being and set you ablaze with glowing devotion to Jesus Christ.”  —  My Utmost

my dear Holy Spirit, i pray to You to pick me.
