Summer Re-run (orginally posted 11/12/07)
If you never again received a word of praise, affirmation or recognition, would you still do it for Me?
If it seems too hard, too much, too overwhelming, and too heavy, would you still do it for Me?
If you never get your apology, never get your answer; never know for sure, will you still do it for Me?
"Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You're not in the driver's seat; I am. Don't run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I'll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for? " Mark 8:34-37 (The Message)
