When I go to the Lord, am I asking Him for what I can get from Him, or am I asking for HIM?! I really, really don't want to be normal. I don't even want to be a normal Christian. Sorry if anyone takes offense to that. Wait. No. I'm not. I want to be exceptional. I want to be so full of Jesus that when people encounter me, they don't. I want to care only about WHO I am, never about WHAT I am. What people experience when they run across me should be my concern instead of what car, house, degree, job, status, and money I have. I want to be different. I want to join Beth in being a powerful display of Living Proof that Jesus works. Every time. The difference. Filled with the Spirit and only the Spirit. I want to push the limit of the power and authority Jesus has already given me. Even if it makes me wierd. Jesus. Just Jesus. I want HIM. I want to fall madly in love with HIM. That is all:•}

Hi Elisabeth!
I found your blog through the LPM blog.
I am reading Forgotten God by Francis Chan and what you wrote here reminds me of what I am reading about. Like what it really means to have the Holy Sprirt abiding in us and who He really is...
Anyway I love your honesty in your writing!

That's so funny. I have Crazy Love on my nightstand, and I haven't read it yet. I have people say I remind them of him often. 8 years ago I went to a Bible school where he was one of my teachers. I guess something he said clicked in me. I need to read his books! :•}
