This is how I do it! Or how it works for me, my thoughts come in waves, at any time, any where and I like it best when it comes in waves close to my computer, so I can get the thoughts down before I forget them.
This morning I was blow drying my hair. My hair drying being rather loud, blocking out any other sound but the ramblings in my mind. This morning a conversation I had with a great friend come to mind, I guess it could be about, my expectations, of myself and then of others. I realized having expectations of other people can only leave disappointment most of the time. So I concentrate on my self expectations and disciplines.
I am one person on this planet, for every 10 people that know me, there is a few million who don’t. Which is fine by me because I like to concentrate on one person at a time at any given time. And to that person I will give priority. And I have also come to realize that there is only one that I do try to impress with my actions, with my thoughts, with how I live my life on any given day.. God..with HIM being the reason I am the way I am, I think any one else in my life has and will always benefit.
HE don’t care what my body looks like, what the color of my skin is, who is my favourite movie star or what political party I follow.. None to be honest. J All he cares about is if I am spreading love and inspiration to those around me. I think I do and on the days I feel like I don’t, some one I know, comes out of the woodwork with a short message to say I have. That I know is God , letting me know, he approves of how I am living my life.
I try to imagine my days without my FAITH, especially my painful days with ankylosing spondylitis. I know they would be unbearable and instead of believing HE will ease my pain and burden, I would fall and want to give up. I can not spend my days trying to impress anyone in my life. This is me, myself and I.
I come across a friends blog, Chris Martin and want to share with you, just a small part of it, where he talks about Jesus’s cares. Well what he thinks HE cares about and I will agree with him.
“The fate of all mankind was precariously hanging in the balance, and one perfect human decided it was worth everything to become love, and make the ultimate sacrifice. He didn’t shed His blood so we can protest same sex marriage. He didn’t offer Himself as a living sacrifice so we can debate whether or not there will be a tribulation. He certainly didn’t sweat drops of blood in the garden to give us an opportunity to judge people and condemn them when they fail. He died for us, so we can live for Him.
Live for Him? What exactly would that look like? It means dying to everything we want, and following Him in all that we do. NO MATTER WHAT THE COST. We can’t prioritize our desires over what Christ wants for our life. The scars he obtained on that dark day, when God turned His back, give Him the right to request our complete surrender. We argue and debate over things like taxes, sports, and religion, but are we willing to die for them?
Jesus surrendered His own wants and desires in order to fulfill the plan of God. And He did it all while envisioning His own death. What does Jesus care about? He doesn’t care about our politics, or how many different languages sang America the Beautiful in the Super Bowl commercial.
He cares about our eternal destination.”
………what are your cares and who you trying to impress?……….
