It's Not About Me

"Lord take me where you want me to go; let me meet who you want me to meet; tell me what you want me to say and Lord keep me out of your way." (Unknown author). I was given this saying by an interesting man who shares quotes at my church. For some reason this particular quote has really spoke to me. These simple yet powerful words have guided me when I get caught up in myself and also inspired this piece. It is true, Jesus came to teach us how to live and the rest was up to us to carry it on for the sake of others, not just to keep for ourselves. In John 14:6 " Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one can come to the father except through me." I believe in order to do so we need to die to ourselves to be able to truly see others. We are like a stone thrown in a pond, with the rings rippling out not knowing who or how we will impact someone. With our focus being only on lifting and loving someone, even when they are not deserving.
