This is my first time on your blog and I was drawn...

This is my first time on your blog and I was drawn to this post immediately.

The issue of relevance is something I didn't (directly) realize I had a problem with. And because I didn't know how to identify it, I wasn't unable to dismantle it.

I have been striving towards intimacy with God more than I ever have in my life. I get so excited about the ways that God makes me new that I want to go out and change the world and tell them about Jesus!! But I am nobody to them and I have nothing to offer them. (At least that is how they make me feel) God usually has no relevance to them either. Then I wonder if I have done something wrong or if God can't or won't use me. I am seeking relevance.

But I AM irrelevant!!!! Yea!!! I shouldn't seek relevance as part of my walk with the Lord. I realize that is self-seeking and will destroy me. I never thought I'd be so happy about declaring my irrelevancy. I feel like part of me has been set free.
