Expectations: What Have I Signed Up For?
Today the challenge was very simple? What really are your expectations of living dead. So no analysis, just my real life expectations of what I believe living for God, and putting myself to death will entail.
I expect that living dead will be hard to begin.
I expect that living dead will bring me into the crosshairs of the enemy.
I expect that living dead will make me more aware of my fellow-man.
I expect God to provide growth and sustain me during this time.
I believe that God will reap a harvest through the death of my will.
I expect their to be little pay, little reward, and little recognition here on Earth.
I expect that my family and friends will not understand, and may even be alienated by my choice.
I expect that living dead will bring tears of sadness and pain, as well as tears of joy and victory.
I expect that living dead will bring me closer to God, and will allow me to walk and respond in the Spirit daily.
I believe that God is the strength that I lean on in times of my weakness.
These are some of the things that come to mind when I think about living dead, about putting myself last and God first. What do you expect?
