What you are prepared to loose

Sometimes what is holding you back in life is not what you do not have, rather it is what you have that you are not prepared to loose. Therefore if you are struggling in life it may be not because of what you do not have, rather it may be because of what you do have that you are unable to let go. 

I have misrepresented God many times by not being completely willing to loose certain things in order to help you and God.  
I have been very reluctant to give up things to help you. I have been reluctant to give up my "need" to be seen as important, I have been reluctant to give up my "need" to be seen as smart, I have been reluctant to give up my "need" to seen as nice, I have been reluctant to give up my "need" of being financially secure. I have been reluctant to give up my "need" to be seen as correct, I have been reluctant to give up my "need" to be in control, there are plenty of other things I have been reluctant to give up.    God in his heart would willingly give up all He Is and all He has ever wanted for you for no other reason than He values you more than all He Is and has ever wanted. . 

Wanting God and in turn others of you so much that you would willingly give all you are and have ever wanted for no other reason than you value God and in turn others of you more than all you are and have ever wanted..
