‘God, I ask you, light these idle sticks of my life and may I burn for You. Consume my life, my God, for it is Yours. I do not seek a long life, but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus’ Jim Elliot

He could do it because he’d realised that his life wasn’t his own. He saw that the joy of living a rich and full life for God’s Kingdom was way better than living long and chasing his own desires. What could it look like for God to light the idle sticks of your life?
