As a Christian I say I have given my all to Christ, but have I really?

Christ doesn’t want 99.999 (hate to say 63.9) percent of my life. Without giving him everyting of my self I am unable to have everthing of Him.  I haven’t handed over fully the ropes of my life.  Everday I struggle with letting the Lord take complete control over me and my thoughts.

I have to be willing as sooon as my alarm goes off in the mornings to wake up handing the control of the day ovver to God. 

C.S. Lewis said, “All your wishes and hopes fro the day rush at you like wild animals.” Without letting God take contraol of the day as soon as I wake I am leading myself into a poth of destruction for the day. Without handing evertything over to him at that very moment I am setting myself up for a battle between Christ and myself for the rest of the day.

Luke 14:25-33 speaks of “counting the cost.”  Being a Christian there is a cost, even if oes doens’t want to admit it.  As a Christian I struggle giving up instant gratification. There are times that I have to stop and step back for a a moment. Are the things I just for me and me alone? Am I seeking pleasure for just the moment and not consideirng how it will effect me and others in the long run?

What are you struggling with today?
