What does your banner say??

This is one of my favorite quotes.  May each of us strive to have this be true of us.

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed.  The dye has been cast!  I have stepped over the line.  The decision has been make; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.  I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still.   My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure.  I'm finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tainted visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.  I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits or popularity,  I now live by faith, lean on His presence, wait with Patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power.  My face is set, my gait is fast, and my goal is Heaven.  My read is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear!  I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed.  I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of 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, and paid up of the cause of Christ.  I must go till He comes, give till I drop, reach till I know, and work till He stops me.  And when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear.
