Men, I came across this today and I’m totally blown away by it. It just hit me. It sums up the walk of a man passionate about his faith. Read this and let it soak in…
“My future is secure. I am done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, mundane talking, chintzy giving and dwarfed goals. I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotion or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised or rewarded. My face is set; my goal is sure. My road is narrow; my way is rough, my companions few. My God is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, delayed or deluded. I will not flinch in the face of adversity, negotiate at the enemy or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I am a disciple of Christ. I must go until He comes for His own, by the grace of God. He will have no problem recognizing me, because my colors are clear.”
This is the very last journal entry of a Zimbabwean pastor martyred in the faith.
I will memorize this one. It’ll be a very constant companion during the days of loneliness, despair, doubt, hunger and fear
