One thing I've said on my blog, in my heart and out loud a lot is that "I want more of God".
Today I take that back.
This past weekend Gene and I attended Family Life's Weekend to Remember conference. We've helped with it for the last 6 years and attended a total of 7 years and we strongly believe what they teach at these conferences has been the very tool God has used to save our marriage. But this year I learned something different that had everything to do with me being the bride of Christ instead of the bride of Gene.
It was Saturday afternoon and we were at the end of session 5: What Every Marriage Needs: God's Power for Oneness. The last page of the session there was this sentence that wouldn't leave me.
As we grow, we don't get more of God...
He gets more of us.
No longer will I ask God to surrender to me, instead I will ask Him to help me surrender all to Him.
I can't get enough of His Word and the more He gets in me, the more I am usable to Him.
Have Your way Sweet Jesus, have Your way in this woman with a past only You could forgive and find a way to use for Your glory. I love You more now than I did even an hour ago.
The new yearning in my heart.
As I grow, I don't get more of God...
He gets more of me.
