how often do we really ponder and reflect back the love of God is greater far than tongue or pen could ever described? To write the love of God above it would even drain the ocean dry!

Find this very true..Indeed we should check out "who am I " in the first place..Let go..Let God!
However, when these difficulties come, our tendency is to pray for deliverance instead of growth. We ask the Lord. "How can I get out of this?" instead of "What can I get out of this?" When we do that, we miss the opportunities God gives us to develop spiritual maturity. - Warren Wierbe
The cost of discipleship is exacting! Sometimes my direction got sidetracked which hinders me serving Christ. The fundamental question to ask is, "who is the true master of my life?" I often emphasize this particular question to re-align my life.
When I was doing my reading and reflection, I found this very insightful whereby "we must return to embrace a life hidden in Christ. A half-hearted allegiance will not bear the fruit of a lasting commitment. The deeper life involves giving total allegiance to Him. Jesus gave His all, holding nothing back. Hence, we should do the same".
This is a journey instead of a 100 meters race. We bound to have challenges and spiritual burn-out. Let us not stop there but to press on toward the goal.
We try to be our own masters as if we had created ourselves. Then we hopelessly strive to invent some sort of happiness for ourselves outside of God, apart from God. And out of that hopeless attempt has come human history...the long, terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy. - C.S. Lewis
