The Zimbabwe Covenant -    "Only one life, twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last" 
 
(Something I read the other day, very good)

"I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I will not look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotion, or popularity. I do not have to be right, first, tops, recognized, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gate is fast, my goal is Heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought,, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not give up, shut up, or let go. I will go on until He comes, and until He stops me. 

I am a disciple of Jesus."

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life


    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
