“I am part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed.
The die has been cast. The decision has been made. I have stepped over the line. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is in God’s hands. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, the bare minimum, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, frivolous living, selfish giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, applause, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, the best, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith. I lean on Christ’s presence. I love with patience, live by prayer, and labor with the power of God’s grace.
My face is set. My gait is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my Guide is reliable, and my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, 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, let up, or slow up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and spoken up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give until I drop, speak out until all know, and work until He stops me.
And when He returns for his own, He will have no difficulty recognizing me. My banner is clear; I am a part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed.” (Patrick Madrid, author and radio host)
Amen, Amen, Amen!

We say a hearty ‘amen’ to all these statements. It is certainly our desire. However, if only we could all not only say it, but LIVE it, the whole world would be turned upside down!

I had never seen/read this before. I must print it out and post it in my home where I can see it daily. I needed to be reminded about “sight walking, small planning, the bare minimum, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, frivolous living, selfish giving, and dwarfed goals.”
Amen! Its a good inspiration to post up on the refrigerator! God Bless you!
Now this is what I call taking a STAND! What a beautiful example of sheer and utter determination, tenacity, perseverance, persistence, steadfastness, and setting one’s face as a flint! “I am part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed.” Amen and amen! God bless you!
Yes if we would all take such a stand! God Bless you!
Can I reblog this?
Sure! God Bless you!
I love this quote. It takes in everything. As a writer of poetry, I love the words, the alliteration, the rhythm… It’s very inspiring. I’m going to print it and put it in my Bible where I will see it often.
Yes I too have it where I can read it often! God bless you carol
