5MF: Am I Willing

Willing.

Am I willing…
To sit and be still and alone with my thoughts.
To stand before Jesus and tell him my failures.
Oh wait, he already knows those.

Am I willing…
To contine fighting the Good fight.
The battle that rages war in my soul.
The battle where sometimes I come out on top.
Other times, not so much.

Am I willing…
To love with passion
To love without fear
To love no matter what happens.

Am I willing…
To forgive
Over and over and over
To forgive
To let go
To relax my expectations
of you, of me.

Am I willing…
To say Jesus you are my everything
and actually mean it
To scream to Him
instead of hurting those around me
I know He can take it
It’s why He died for me.

Am I willing…

  1. I was reading this and the lines came to mind from a favorite hymn “What a Friend we have in Jesus! All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer!”. Thanks for this encouragement to do so!!

    Visiting you from FMF.

  2. Willingness to continue fighting the good fight…to forgive again and again…to love without fear…to have Jesus as my everything. These are questions and struggles I really relate to. Thank you for this honesty and glimpse into your heart. Lovely.
