what i need in five years

a greater love for God

a more unselfish love for others

contentment
in whatever condition i find myself

a growing trust in the Lord and His word

a more restful, willing obedience to Him

a willingness
to sell everything i have
and share it all with the poor

such complete dedication to the Lord
that whatever i do, i do for his glory

a bolder witness for Jesus Christ

less quenching God's Spirit,
more filling by him

more experience
knowing God and his word

ceaseless communication with my Savior

peace beyond understanding

unconditional joy

purity of heart

greater ability to make peace

rejoicing in mistreatment
and misrepresentation

knowing the fellowship
of the sufferings
of Christ

security,
stability
in God

this is just a beginning. . .
