Following the path to the Son is not always easy; it is often strewn with stones that prick your feet and pierce your heart. It requires the complete submission of your will. You may be asked to sacrifice the very thing you hold closest to you heart, in order that God may possess your heart completely.
Take a rest on your journey to read these passages and ponder this question:
2 Corinthians 5:7
Are you willing to trust God even when it seems His promises have disappeared?
