This reminds me a lot of "A Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan. I want to be able to trust Him fully and just give up everything for Him. Life with Him is so much better.

For me, loving others towards Truth is more important then my 'self'. 

I am not here for my 'self' but for the One who sent me.

I am here to help others towards salvation by expressing the true nature of Christ in me (the way and the truth and the life). It is all in God's plan, and all I am doing to the best of my ability is to follow God's will for me. Since I was an abused child I have been in love with an unseen Father. From that love came a certainty of being okay. out of empathy for others I asked to be a servant for God to help others find freedom in the Truth. It is a service done totally with, from, and in love with Christ and God. It's a desired obedience made from love. I have been doing it for almost thirty years and never tire from it. If anything it nourishes my heart to overflow.

I do not like this world, but I've been to hell on earth, and nobody needs to go there out of innocence. I am just one of God's many advocates for the innocent and lost. I am here to serve God.

Raven, I hope you're not upset if I reply to this? I'm not trying to lecture you ,I'm trying to show you the love of God for you :)

I know you love to help other people because you love Jesus , but why not ask Jesus to come and live inside of you ? Instead of a servant you will be a child of God adopted into His family, Jesus calls all our work for Him dirty rags if we don't accept Him as our Savior , Jesus will refuse nobody ,He's knocking on people's heart to let Him in .

Eph.1:5

He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--

John 6:37

All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.Isaiah 64:6

 

All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.

Revelation 3:2

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

 

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:10

What makes you think that the Spirit of Christ is not living in me because I wish to be Christ's servant?

1 Corinthians 4:1 This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed.

1 Peter 4:10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.

2 Timothy 2:24-26 And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26. and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

The good news is that we can be both :)

(Romans 1:1) “From Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle.”

Ephesians 1:4–5

4 even as He chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will,

What would keep you from not wanting to leave this world? 

The fact that there are unsaved people here, and still lots of work to do. People in Heaven, do not need our help, people here do!

 21For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 22But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will meanfruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. 23But I am hard-pressed from both directions,having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; 24yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. 25Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith, 26so that your proud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again.
