Quote about our relationship with Christ

Christ is either Lord of all
He is not Lord at all. ~Hudson Taylor~

I came across this quote today and it kind of sums up how I have been thinking/feeling lately. I know my relationship with God, my obedience and discipleship needs to be more. I have been coasting for entirely too long now. And this past year has been a time of reawakening for me. We have a new Pastor at our church (who is also now a dear friend) and his work for God at our church has woken me from my comfortable slumber. My cousin/sister has also helped to wake me up as well. The have wonderfully alive relationship's with God and I am drawn to what they speak of and want that for myself as well. I have been attending a great Bible study this past year, having inspiring conversations about what God is doing in so many lives, reading great books that spark a hunger for more. A hunger not just for myself but those church 'family' members who I can see have also changed this past year. I want us all to take that next 'step' together with our walk with God however I think I am the only one who us ready and so eager for it at this point. The other day I was pouring out my concerns with my friend (who is also my Pastor, sometimes it is hard to keep those two roles distinguished from each other in our conversations) and he gave me a Bible verse --- Psalm 37:7 -- "Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him...". I didn't know the verse but it so pertains to my journey with God. But more about that in my next post.

My heart is ok

Well I certainly left this blog in a bad place, didn't I? Well I am happy to report that everything is okay where my heart is concerned. I went to see the cardiologist and he seems to think that there is a small chance it might be heart related but very slim. I do have some health issues where I could have heart problems so he has schdeuled me for a treadmill stress test for this coming Wednesday. A friend of mine tells me the test is 10 minutes of hell. What a wonderful thing to look forward to. I am hoping my injured foot will hold out for the test otherwise I might have to go for the radioactive dye test and I really rather avoid any radioactive material.
