i have stepped over the line, the decision has been made.
I AM A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST.
i wont look back, let up, slow down, or make be still.
my past is redeemed, my presence makes sense, my future is secure.
i am done with low living, small talking, colorless dreams, tamed visions, cheap giving, & dwarfed goals.
i no longer need preeminence, positions, promotions, or popularity.
i dont have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.
i now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am uplifted by prayer & labor with power.
my face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven.
my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few.
my guide is reliable. my mission is clear.
i cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided, or delayed.
i will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
i wont give up, shut up, or let up until i have stayed up, stored up and paid up for the cause of Christ.
i must go till He comes, give till i drop, preach till all i know & work till He stops me, & when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me.
my banner will be clear."
