rebellious

God takes the worst of us, the most shattered and damaged and rebellious and prideful, and reverses our entropy into pulsing life. He sees a desert and says, “I see a garden.” God can take a miserable sinner like me and you and breathe something brand new into these jagged veins. This is the work of Christ, shaping us, connecting us, healing us.

I want to believe God. To trust Him fully. To follow Him radically. To know that He is the one One who can meet the deepest longings of my heart. 

It’s hard to surrender like that. It goes against the grain of everything we’ve been taught about independence. Individuality. Getting our way.

But I want to rebel against everything that pulls me away rom intimacy with God. 

Rebel against the idea that it’s wrong to have doubts. To wrestle with God. To beg Him for answers. To bring our anger and pain to Him. 

Rebel against our natural tendency to try to figure out life on our own rather than seeking God and wrestling with Him.

Rebel against the half-hearted faith that defines modern day  Christianity- that says you can trust Him for salvation but not everyday life.

Rebel against this false idea of an absent God who doesn’t care about us and isn’t there. 

God is looking for women whose faith is radical.

Women who will be rebellious and life free.

God’s word tells us, “the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).

Fully committed. All in. Undivided.

I want to be that kind of woman.
