Thriving.

At Upper Room last night, the guy who spoke said something very convicting. I have heard it before, but for some reason, I really felt convicted last night. He said that whole thing about if the church was in the same spiritual state as an individual person, would that church be thriving? I thought about it and thought about my life right now. If the church as a whole was praying as much as I was now, it would not be thriving. If the church as a whole was reading their Bibles as much as I was now, it would not be thriving. If the church as a whole was loving as much as I was now, it would not be thriving. This is a problem. 


God, please help me thrive for You. Bring me back to the place where I connect with You each and every day. Give me a greater desire and passion for You. Grow me and stretch me. 

"In my life,
be lifted high.
In our world,
be lifted high.
In our love,
be lifted high."
