Becoming Less....Unsettle me

.6lbs down this week. Altogether I've lost 7.8lbs...I had hoped that number would
be higher at this point, but I know I'm not sacrificing as I should.

Unsettle me...In Chapter 17 in MTC she asked the question...
"Is discipline really sustainable?"

Tricky question huh? Some may answer yes...some say no. Or maybe on our God...absolutely YES!

Have you ever been put in a place where you are longing for something? I mean
really in desperation? I can only think of a few times when I was running & I needed
water so bad that I might pass out. I have been stranded in Wyoming needed a ride
& God provided. But seriously...I have never been in desperate need for much.

But I think it's a place I need to get too in this journey. Slight desperation...where all
I have is God to get me thru this. Have I emptied myself enough to allow His spirit
to make me truly holy as I am made for?

One thing she said just slapped me in the face...
"Getting to a place where our lack of strength disgust us".
Oh I have been disgusted with myself thru this journey & my lack of
discipline. Enough to say no & cling to Him? No...not all the time.

I need to be "unsettled" in my walk with God. I need to crave intimacy with
God & unleash my heart from the bondage of sin.

"Rattle loose my complacent excuses and break apart my stubborn refusals to look,
really look at whatever pulls my heart away from God."....MTC

Trying daily to be deeply satisfied with God...not cheap imitations.

I love you friends. May we all be Unsettle.

He must become greater...I must become less. John 3:30
