these things ....linger.

I posted this a few days ago, then took it down when I felt like too big of a hypocrite. Now, I think I want to put it back up. The words still hang in the air over me. I need to be reminded of them.

It's Not about Me
When I look at my relationships, my lack of fulfillment, my loneliness, my circumstances
My desire to have more, be more, do more
My focus is on me.
me, me, me.
I am reminded time and time again,
when I'm whining to the Lord,
that my life is not about me.
It's not about what I have, or what I don't or what I want or need.
I was put here for His pleasure.
when I live as a being that knows it's purpose,
I am fulfilled.
When I put the focus on me, I am miserable.
So, I climb back up on the cross again. I lay my desires down, and look to Him.
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness and (then) all these things will be added to you."
