This is some of what I wrote in my prayer journal tonight. "I am a friend of Jesus. I must deliberately and carefully lay down my life for him." "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." John 15:13 Jesus commands us to love each other! -Shasta
Moar C.S. Lewis! Prayer isn't an obligation in this case, and it serves not only God (presumably why we pray), but is also beneficial to the individual praying. Lewis recognizes both parties in the relationship and how important both God and human beings
Obedience even when we don't understand. This is something I had to learn and struggle with today. God has a plan and even when it's not what I think it's going to be I know it's the best plan. TRUST GOD AND BE THANKFUL FOR HIS PLAN.
