To hear what I need

I don't know about you, but when I wake up in the morning I find that I want nothing to do with the Gospel or Jesus. In fact I prefer to wake up and think about the day ahead and all the things I want to do - my agenda, my life, my identity. As I awake I find my heart so hard and dull. I think that if I was to do everything I wanted then I would be satisfied.

What a lie.

The one thing I need to hear is the Gospel.
I need to hear it because I don't want to hear it.
I need to hear it because my heart needs to be melted
I need to hear it because it brings me life. Christ brings me life and has made me alive.

Team days were all about the Gospel and I didn't want to hear it but I needed to hear it and I am thankful that I did hear it. The Gospel makes fellowship sweet and food tasty and hearts melting... lets keep hearing it and keeping speaking it.

refreshingly honest!And I do not what you mean, some days I feel liek the last thing I want to do is pray or read my bible. But usually when I am faithful and do those things even when I don't feel like it, I am blessed the most!

Yeh I totally agree, I generally find myself enjoying those things once I get up and do them. I think I have to remind myself that sometimes - its so easy to be lazy and forgetful of Gods amazing blessings and grace!
It just highlights my need for Christs love in my heart! :)
