Fill me and make me whole, so I can fight the good fight.

Jesus, help me. It is far too easy for me to run by my own strength and my own thoughts. It is so easy to not rely on You. Fill me until I am overflowing. Fill me with love, love for others, give me Your heart. I can get so consumed with myself and my life. Help me lay down my life for others. You live in me, yet many times I do not quiet myself and let you speak. Please kill old self, my natural man, my flesh in me daily. I want You to fill the void where the old self was. Make my new self, rooted in You, continue to grow, fill me continually so I can overflow to others. I am your servant, instruct me and I will follow. Make my hands Your hands, make my feet Your feet, make my voice Your voice.

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God." -Hebrews 12:1-2

"But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses." -1 Timothy 6:11-12
