IT IS NOT ABOUT ME
I am posting this as a reminder to myself on those days that I feel like being selfish and being wrapped up in my own life. I am also writing this as a reminder of why we are here. IN our selfish fast pace society we all too often remember why we are here and what is important. We should be being the hands and feet of Christ. As christians we have fallen all too short, I know I have. That is why the government has had to step in and take care of people while the church is really suppose to be. I have fixed suppers this week for two different families who the Lord has blessed with sweet babies. While I am super exhausted and would love no more than to just crawl in my bed and sleep and not worry about anyone else that is not what this life is about and this life IS NOT ABOUT ME BUT ABOUT HIM(CHRIST). i love the Lord and do not serve him nearly as well as I should. I want others to see the Lord in me, to see love, gentleness, selflessness but I fall wayyyyy too short daily. Daily I have to die to self. I just want to remind Christians that serving others is what it is all about. Also that being there for the needy and widows. REaching out to those that are sad but all too often we are caught up in our own lives to really notice what is going on around us and who is hurting. I am talking about myself in this as well. My hope is that we all start looking around us and thinking of others, we are far too wrapped up in our little lives and really that is not what we were made for. We were made to serve! Who are you serving?
