My daughter just emailed me this and I really liked it. I hope you do too...

Rwanda
by Dr. Bob Moorehead

In 1980 a young man from Rwanda was forced by his tribe to either renounce
Christ or face certain death. He refused to renounce Christ, and he was
killed on the spot. The night before, he had written the following
commitment which was found in his room:

"I'm part of the fellowship of the unashamed, the die has been cast, I have
stepped over the line, the decision has been made- I'm a disciple of Jesus
Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I'm
finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless
dreams, tamed vision, worldly talking, cheap giving & dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer and I labor with power.

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, my mission is
clear. I won't give up, shut up, let up until I have stayed up, stored up,
prayed up for the cause of Jesus Christ.

I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till everyone knows, work
till He stops me & when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble
recognizing me because my banner will have been clear."
