It is better...

"Better to love God and die unknown than to love the world and be a hero; better to be content with poverty than to die a slave to wealth; better to have taken some risks and lost than to have done nothing and succeeded at it."

-Erwin Lutzer, Pastor of Moody Church

There's not much I can add to a statement like that. It sums up my hopes for this life on earth.
I want to live free from slavery to the things of this world.
I long to be so content with loving God that nothing else matters.
I desire to attempt much for God, regardless of the outcome.

Sometimes I wonder if I will really live like that. I fear a wasted life. But you know what? I can't live like that...not without the power of God working in me. I need His Spirit to do in me what I cannot. He is the God of the impossible and He promises to show His power in our weakness.

Thus, I give Him my love, my possesions and all that I do. All things are in His hands.
