And now my beloved brethren or sisters, after ye have gotten onto this strait and narrow path, I would ask if all is done? Behold, I say unto you nay, for ye have not come thus far save it were by the faith in him, relying wholly upon the merits of him who is mighty to save.

I esteem myself as having repented, I don't esteem Jesus enough. I owe him my life spiritualy and physically. I am saved by his grace and yet I know I do not humble myself to glory him enough.

I just realized that if my intention is to glorify him I would not worry about my failure. I would have no fear in the journey. I will be no longer alone in what I do. I will not be self seeking, only seeking to point the finger in the direction of the Lord. This takes a lot of pressure off my shoulders. I don't need to be everything to everyone, I need only to do the best that I can so that when people ask by what means to I achieve I can point at him as the source of what he has created through my hands.

I will begin today to act confidently in the Lords will. I will realize that I of myself am nothing but in him I am great. I will step with force and passion as I serve others to lead them to him.

"Freedom from your transgression will come through sincere faith, true repentance, willing obedience, and the giving of self. Why the giving of self? Because selfishness is at the root of your problem. Where selfishness and transgression flourish, the Spirit of the Lord can’t enter your life to bless you. To succeed, you must conquer your selfishness. When your beacon is focused on self, it does little more than blind your vision. When turned outward through acts of kindness and love, it will light your path to happiness and peace. "
