I was so affected by that statement, the one about being absolutely and entirely God's, that I have mulled it over in my mind and meditated on it for the last three days. I wrote in the front of my Utmost book and signed my name and the date underneath. I have made a committment and now I have to figure out what that looks like in my everyday life.
By God's grace, from this day forward, I will be ABSOLUTELY and ENTIRELY for Him and Him alone. This is a huge undertaking--one for which I will have to submit to God second by second--one for which I will have to have a long obedience in the same direction. God grant me wisdom and patience and the ability to die to myself.
"... my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death"
