Count the cost

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.     Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions.   —Luke 14.27-28, 33

    God, help me to walk away from all I possess, to fall in love with you, and follow you in love. Let my money and my goods belong to those who need them more. My comfort and security, my power and control, and all that others think of me, I'm giving away. My habits and my ways of thinking and of doing things, my mastery, I'm selling at a yard sale, cheap. My assumptions and judgments I leave behind—even my deepest beliefs— and only follow you, and there alone discover what I know, receive what is given to me, and possess what is mine. Holy One, Life-Breather, this day I let go of everything I have and leave it all to follow you. And tomorrow all that I've acquired I'll give away again.     _____________________ Weather Report

Clear, as a low pressure system brings relief from the obscuring clouds of having and doing, the stickiness of all we cling to, and we become who we are.     Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
