"just" or MORE

It's been so long since I've blogged I don't know where to start. So let me just talk about what's been on my mind. Over the past few months as I look deeper into God's word He is showing me that I have a real desire not not to "just" be me but to be MORE. What does that mean? I don't want to go through life "just" merely getting by. I want to be as our blog site says, "On fire for God's desire". Every moment of everyday I want to be MORE. MORE through Jesus, MORE of a wife to my husband, MORE of a mom to my children, MORE of a friend, MORE of a daughter, MORE of a sister, MORE of a comforter, listener, MORE of a doer and less of a "just" enough to get by woman in Christ. God says, "I'm "MORE" than a conqueror in Him." So why do I allow myself to "just" be enough? Maybe it's because I'm scared to step out and allow God to have His way with all parts of my life. Maybe it's because I'm not really sure how to step out and be MORE. So I've began to pray about this. About finishing each and every decision and choice that I start, about praying for God to use me even MORE and for me to be entwined so tightly with Christ that I want to do MORE that I seek to be MORE in and through Him. I just started a really good book called Becoming more than a good Bible study girl. By: Lysa Terkeurst. I'm not a reader so to speak. So the fact that I'm already to chapter 11 of this book and I read the introduction pages is a real sign that I wish to be MORE in Christ. I hope that you have a sweetly blessed week. And may we strive to be MORE and not to "just" be.
Thank you for stopping by the GRILL.
