"I will not find the desire within me to seek God, He must instill within my soul a longing, and out of that longing must be a ready and willing heart to obey. If I ask God to guide me, He will make it clear that He has been here all along, and in that revealing of Himself, I can step out of my boat and walk toward Him. This faith that I hope to live, is not me building it, but God shaping and changing it daily; for He is making something inside of me that will be known for all eternity, and that thing that He is doing must be surrendered up to Christ, so that His kingdom can be expanded. My whole life must be one repeated prayer of “Not my will, but Yours be done.” until my final breath."
