IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT ME

Today I’m realizing it’s not all about me. Maybe I don’t need to understand. I need to TRUST! Jesus gave up his life for me, so why am I not trusting my life to Him? (It sounds so simple, but why is it so hard to believe 100% of the time!?)

There’s always going to be seasons of hope and seasons of despair. We never know when they will happen or how long they will stay. But we can always be sure that God will work it for good. I’m looking to the future with anticipation and excitement. I’m trusting in God’s time and plan for our lives. I’m not ruining today anymore. I’m enjoying the time I have TODAY, as there’s no guarantees for tomorrow.

Anyone can give thanks and praise God during the happy times. It’s natural! But if you can give thanks and praise God during the sad times as well, then you are a shining example to everyone. I want to reflect and shine my light to others. I want people to say, “What’s Amy got? I want some of that.”

Well, I’ll tell you my secret – and it’s not even a secret at all. I’m a child of God. A child of God who wants to do His will and show others that God loves them too. This world and the people are too incredible to have happened my chance. We were created in His image. I pray and hope that everyone in this world has a chance to hear that they are loved by God. I’ve been blessed to be raised by loving, Christian parents. I’ve been blessed to have a member of supportive churches my entire life. But my greatest blessing is through Jesus. And because of that I have inherited eternal life and no one can take that from me.

So, it’s not about me. But it is about how my life can shine to show others the light of God! As the saying goes, “Your life may be the only Bible some people read.”
