"I’ve separated this into 16 powerful thoughts. Take each one separately and
meditate on what it means and how it applies to you.
I want to read these words EVERY DAY to remind myself who I am, and
who I am supposed to be as a follower of Jesus Christ. Please, read these

"I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The die has been cast. I
have stepped over the line. The decision has been made.
I’m a disciple of His and I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away,

I live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and
labor by Holy Spirit power.
My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven.
My road may be narrow, my way rough, my companions few, but my guide is
reliable and my mission is clear.
I will not be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back,

popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up,
prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus!
I must give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He comes.
And when He does come for His own, He’ll have no problems recognizing me. My
colors will be clear!"
