Starting points?

Shifting up a gear. What is it that you are laying your life down for? what Cross do you carry? how are you denying yourself? have you forsaken all? (John 15:13. Matt 16:24 Luke 14:33). The demands of Christ! In my late fifties, questions I am now asking myself, that I should have asked myself years ago.  Shifting up a gear. I forgot, it should had been my starting point!
