Its about Him.

A friend gave me this devotional today. Wow..

"Jesus? Oh Yes, I remember Jesus, but right now I'm trying to figure out why my future seems so bleak and why my friends seem so unconcerned about my loneliness. I just don't see how his death and imminent return make much difference."
I read this an said how does this woman know my thoughts!.

"This day isn't about me at all. It's about him: his sinless life, death, resurrection, ascension and reign and the sure promise of return. Its the gravity of his life that should attract my thought towards him." E. Fitzpatrick

Its not about me.. even though I think about me all the time. It is His Life, death, resurrection, ascension and reign that matter!

An Unremarkable Faith

An Unremarkable Faith

This blog was really encouraging me today. I think he has hit it on the nose.
Faithful: something to desire and strive for. Will I be faithful? I have this character trait of wanting to run away when the going gets tough: Change a church, change a job, seek new friends, strike out in anger, anything but faithful. Life is boring so do something stupid regardless of the consequences or seeking God in the manner. I have that down pat.

As I grow in grace, please Lord change me to something to reflect you and not me.
