God's Authority

To be totally honest, I have no idea if anyone reads my thoughts. I use this blog as an outlet to process things, to document if and how I am growing in the Lord, and to just write out my feelings on a subject. I do not write here because I believe my way of feeling or thinking is the end all. Please hear me, I am only writing what is on my heart and what is coming up into my spirit. That all being said, I will move on to what has been on my heart lately.

The topic that I think God is bringing to my attention is that of authority. He seems to be asking me over and over, "Lauren, am I the ultimate authority in your life?" I have really been wrestling with what this should look like in my own journey into the heart of Christ. I am desperately seeking to align all of the areas in my life with the authority of the Lord. I want to be totally and completely under His Lordship. I want to be intimately connected to Him so that all of my thoughts, motives, words, attitudes, and meditations can be directed and immersed in power and grace that is only found in the Lord. More than anything in this world, I yearn to be clothed in word and deed in the likeness of Christ. I want to live in such a way that the world can know beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is an all-powerful, supreme God that is sovereign over all things.

Lord God, I say to you once again that all of who I am belongs solely to you. You are my treasure. You are my portion. You are the meaning and signifigance of my life. In you I can do all things to which you call me. Without you I am nothing. Please come and sew me to be totally and completely in awe of you. You are the ultimate joy of all of who I am. Have your way in me now and forever. I love you.
