To save anyone the trouble and curiosity, below is my “Motions Resolution” that I posted on the Matthew West web site (see previous blog entry).
“I’ve been fighting within my heart too long, refusing to fully give it to God and surrender the way the Bible describes. I’ve been afraid to release control and give it to Him, because I’ve been hurt before by others in control (who hasn’t?) and that makes it harder. I really feel that’s part of the reason that I have such a hard time with prayer. It requires the right kind of heart and mind and I’ve just been telling everyone that it’s my “weak spot” to work on. When, in reality, I’m avoiding it altogether. I guess it’s time I get down to business and quit avoiding what I know I need to do.”
