all about.... uhhhh

I have a theory... definitly a stolen one... but it is what it is......

"It's not about me."

More than that...it never was. How self aborbed to think I've trained my mind to think that the world revolves around Jessica. Only through Christ can we train our minds to see this in a culture that points to a mentality so different. In its simpliest form what does that even look like in today's culture.... I think I have an idea!! That selfish thing certianly is so natural.. yet so ugly. Father, forgive my selfish heart! Someone wiser put in all in perspective...

Be blessed!

"Life makes sense when we accept our place.The gift of pleasures,the purpose of problems—all for him.The God-centered lifeworks. And it rescues us from a life that doesn’t. But how do we make the shift? How can we bebumped off self-center?Attend a seminar, howl at
the moon, read a Lucadobook? None of these(though the author appreciatesthat last idea). We move from me-focus to Godfocus by pondering him.Witnessing him. Following the counsel of the apostle Paul:

“Beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, [we] are changed into the same image from glory to glory,even as by the Spirit of the Lord”(2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV).

Beholding him changes us. Couldn’t we use a change? Let’s
give it a go. Who knows? We might just discover our place in
the universe."
