I'm ready to give my life away. I'm ready to lay down my life for the sake of the glory of God. It's funny, though, because I feel like, in drifting away from making this my aim, I lost a little bit of myself. I went to Radina's tonight and listened to some great music and I thought, "Why don't I do this more often?" I told my friends that if I could do anything with my life, it would be to do exactly what those musicians were doing, sharing their hearts in a coffee shop on a Friday night. The response to that statement: Why don't you? My friend Jessica had on a crazy outfit yesterday and when I saw it, I wondered why I don't dress like that anymore. So I guess my conclusion is that I'm in a bit of a paradox. I want to get myself back; I want to express who I am, the gifts God has given me, and how he has enabled me to express those gifts. But in that process, I also want to give that life away to Father. I want to sacrifice my comfort in order for people to fall deeper in love with Christ.

Good word. It's really only in giving ourselves completely to HIM that we find our true selves, anyway.
