Day 297 of Giving Thanks

As I close my eyes, I consider many things from the day. And, first things first – I am grateful for an amazing God! I am grateful that through my pain, sorrow and tears, I feel the outstretched arms of my heavenly Father. Through His promises, I am reminded that it is He I must emulate, that it is me that I must give up and in the process of all this, I become greater than ever imagined.

And at the right time, when He deems perfect, I will be perfected.  

 

Lord, I have been so full of myself - wanting every little thing to be done the way I want them to be done... and truly when I think back on all decisions I made against Your will, I know that loosing myself to gain You is completely in my best interest. Lord, help me to become self-less so that I can be my best self in You. 

 

It is my pleasure to serve selflessly, wholly!

"He must become greater; I must become less." ~John 3:30


It is my pleasure to serve selflessly, wholly! And, I am excited that in the process, although I am not where I "feel" I should be I "believe" I am in a much better place than I ever dreamed. 

“Do you see the difference? Sacrifices offered to idols are offered to nothing, for what's the idol but a nothing? Or worse than nothing, a minus, a demon! I don't want you to become part of something that reduces you to less than yourself. And you can't have it both ways, banqueting with the Master one day and slumming with demons the next. Besides, the Master won't put up with it. He wants us—all or nothing. Do you think you can get off with anything less?


Looking at it one way, you could say, "Anything goes. Because of God's immense generosity and grace, we don't have to dissect and scrutinize every action to see if it will pass muster." But the point is not to just get by. We want to live well, but our foremost efforts should be to help others live well.” ~1 Corinthians 10:19-24

All I can do is become more like Christ, and get better. After all, I am the daughter of the King!
