Sacrifice and obedience...I still have much work to do!

I overslept this morning and have a million things to so before going to work...I didn't get today's message is a deep one about sacrifice and obedience. The only thing I will say this morning is that even though I write these messages every day...even though I pray every day and feel closer to God than ever before, I STILL feel like something is holding me back from obeying God "with ALL my heart." There are things I can't seem to overcome no matter how hard I 43 years I supposed to be in total obedience? 

Anyway, sorry for the mini "pity party"... I just know there is SO MUCH more work for me to do to be totally obedient and sacrificing the things that are holding me back. Sometimes it seems overwhelming...doesn't it?


  1. I hear you! I suspect the reason that this feeling is common among us all is that while we are "earth bound" in these human bodies- we are very aware of our limitations and long to be set free[ along with all creation] into the fulness of joy we will know in Heaven.
    Does that help at all? If not, sorry- I was trying to "get a feel" for how you were feeling.
    Prayers for abundant blessings on you in every area of your life- !!

  2. Mary, so sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your post. Busy doesn't even begin to describe how I have been in the last few weeks! I was just commenting to a friend recently that perhaps THAT should be my find a way to be less busy so I can focus on what God wants me to do. The problem is...many of the things that I am busy doing are things I feel God wants me to do! LOL I bet God laughs when he sees us trying to figure this all out on our own!

    I think I do get overwhelmed from time to time...trying to do so many things and then feel bad when I can't get them accomplished, or accomplished as well as i'd like. If I can learn what to let go of...then I would feel free! Thanks for your kind words!
