Good Morning ~ Do you have time to join me in a cup of coffee and a few thoughts for Sunday.
As I watch our society, it seems we have become such a selfish Nation in so many ways. In every walk of life we hear "WHAT ABOUT ME?"
Years ago, when Julie had Nick, and brought him home from the hospital, the two little sisters wanted to hold him. Amanda was the oldest and she sat on the couch holding little Nick so carefully. Monica, a few years younger, kept repeating "What about me?" "What about me?" She wanted to hold that new little brother too.
That story has stuck in my mind, as I see selfishness on a rampage in so many avenues of out lives. I'm sorry to say in many cases it's become the normal, an accepted attitude. Sadly, from time to time, I find myself saying (perhaps not out loud, but in my heart) What about Wanda? What about my needs? What about my desires? What about my future? What about my life?
The truth of the matter is, Jesus said before the foundations of the world, "I knew you, I loved you, and my plan is all about you!!
What about my needs? "My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:19
What about my desires? "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart". Psalms 37:4
What about my future? "For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
What about my life? "The thief (Satan) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10
When you get discouraged and begin to hear yourself say "What about me?" Remember our Heavenly Father from the beginning time prepared a plan for you to know Him personally through His Son, Jesus Christ. The longer I walk with Jesus, and now it's been a long long time, I realize it's really less about me and more about Jesus, the One and Only.
Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks so much for sharing a cup of coffee and a few of my thoughts for Sunday.
