It's not about me...It's about you Jesus

I was reminded tonight during a conversation with a friend that my life should be lived in worship to God. I was created to serve God and live a life that is pleasing to Him. I am to live a life that brings Jesus praise. My life should point others to who God is. My life should never point others to me.

Sometimes I have to wonder if God ever grows weary of me. I mean really, I complain and whine when things aren't to my liking. When things start getting difficult I so often feel like quitting and wonder why things just can't be a little easier. I often live life as if it should center around me. I want! I need! I so often make it all about me!

But the world was not created around me. It was created around God. I was created for Him, so that I would live a life that would bring glory and praise to His name. Anything less is sin.

Oh Father forgive me for my pride and selfishness. Forgive me for wanting this life about me. Help me to learn to die to my wants, desires and those things I think I can't do without. Show me how to serve others and live a life that is others centered - not self centered.

My soul is grieved with the knowledge that for even one moment I might put myself above you, but isn't that what I do when I make all this about me? Forgive me and help me to live a life that is all about you.

You alone are God, help me to surrender to Yours ways. Help me to find contentment in You alone.

Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me."For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matt 16:24-25

  1. Blessings Sharon...isn't it so refreshing to come to that place of knowing IT'S ALL ABOUT HIM! We know it but do we live it out!

    I love this song and recently had posted this & downloaded it to remind me daily.

    It's been far too long since I've visited you and your beautiful place here. May we surrender to His and each day & live our lives experiencing ALL HIS FULLNESS & GRACE! How wonderful to know that He forgives us the minute we confess & surrender it to His ways!
    What a blessing! What an awesome God! How precious is the Lover of Our souls...may we be mindful of this as we enJOY this weekend.

    love & hugs,


Leave me some joy...
