Whatever It Takes, As Long As It Brings HIM Glory

Last night my preacher preached a message that was so encouraging. He was challenging us to take our faith deeper, trusting that God knows what is best... ALL the time! Nothing surprises Him - and though we might not like everything that is happening in our lives, or what's going on around us, it's HIS choice to make... because HE is God. and God is good. ALL the time, my God is good!

I prayed last night: "Lord, whatever it takes to bring You glory... whatever it takes to bring others to You... whatever it takes to keep me in your will... that's what I'm willing to do. Do whatever it takes, Lord. No matter what I might have to go through. No matter if it takes mistreatment, mockery, embarrassment.... whatever. I'm willing. I'm Yours for You to do with as You deem best."


  1. Amen! And I'm praying for you right now that may He protect you as you offer your life to do His will.
    "Always be strong in the Lord's mighty power!"
    God bless you sister. Have a great day!

  2. Such a beautiful heart filled prayer, be blessed.

  3. Heather,

    The last part of your post sounds like it could be put into a song. Very poetic!

    Gotta love those pastors that really make you think and have an Ah Ha! moment!

  4. That is a powerful prayer...and one that God takes seriously. It took courage to pray it and it will take courage to live it out. But that is exactly the kind of heart God is seeking.

    Great post!

  5. AMEN!! I'm right with ya. All I want to do is live completely for Him.
    Nice to "meet" you. :O)

I am Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! I am intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. I have a good head on my shoulders, and oftentimes find myself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. I take great pleasure in many things. I am proficient in nearly all of them, though I will never own it. Lest I seem too perfect, I have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves me very ill indeed.
