The verse above is The Message version of Mark 8:34, “...If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Is it just me or is the number one issue for a believer the question of lordship? Who’s really in charge of my life... God or me? God calls us daily to a place of deeper surrender. There are some days when we have relinquished everything to Him. Then there are other days when we jump back into the driver’s seat because we get worried or we think we know better. (Those days don’t work out so well.) The life of a believer is not one that is easy or free of problems. It is a life of surrendering control to the One who loves us so much. . . . #bible#biblejournaling#journalingbible#biblejournalingcommunity#cactus#beavertailcactus#watercolor#lettering#modernlettering#desertblooms#desertsunset#sunset#cactus🌵#🌵
