My life is not about me.

This Morning while spending time with God I listened to the songĀ Lead me to the Cross by Hillsong. While listening to it I was reminded of Mark 8:34 and was deeply challenged. I was reminded that my life is not about me. It is not even about my husband or my little boy. My life belongs to God and it is about bringing Him glory. Loving, caring and serving my family is a way of bringing glory to God because it is the calling he has placed on my life. Daily I need to remember to put God first and that ultimately my life is not about me.

Psalm 8

  
This Morning I read through Psalm 8 and was touched by it. It overwhelmed me that God would choose us human beings to watch over His creation. That He would choose me to do this will here on earth. God’s creation is truly wonderful and beautiful. Which means that we are too because we are created by God in His image (Gen 1:26).  I am amazed that God would chose to use me in His will. I am not perfect and I am marked by sin. Yet He has chosen to forgive me and use me.
