The March issue of Simple Grace features Kirk Franklin’s incredible journey of faith. In this sneak preview from the exclusive interview, Kirk opens up about how he starts his days
“I start my day just surrendering myself, my dreams, my goals, all in exchange for God’s,” he says of his daily prayer life. “I want to swap my will for His so I can live the life of His purpose. It’s very important for me because sometimes I’m very selfish and self-centered,” he adds with a chuckle.
“I have a lot of ideas to help bring others to God, but I know some of those ideas are contaminated with my own human desires to be great,” Kirk admits. “So I give my dreams and desires to God and I know He cares more about my well-being and development than my popularity. That’s not always easy for me to remember or understand, so I work hard every day to surrender to God’s plan—but it helps to know His plan is way better than mine!”
