First, I’m having a Amazon Gift Card give-away…if you haven’t already, check out Tuesdays post and leave me a comment to be entered!
I used to think it was all about me. Maybe it came from being a first born who knows. But for years I secretly felt that the world revolved around me and my needs. Eventually, life did what life tends to do and let me know that in no uncertain terms…it was not about me.You know the drill, one thing after 500 go terribly wrong and you’re left feeling that you can’t catch a break from the “world” or anybody else. Your left with this assumption…I don’t matter.
And as I tend to do, I took it to the extreme, coming to the conclusion that I was insignificant. Barely average. Nothing at all special. Why would my life be important in the grand scheme of things.
But without me even realizing exactly when the shift occurred, I’m understanding these days that I was right…about both extremes ~
Don Miller says, “I’m just a tree in a story about a forest”. In other words my life isn’t the focus. There’s something much bigger going on. But here’s the rest of that story…I’m totally free to take my eyes off of me and look at the bigger picture because no matter how insignificant this “tree” is, the God who made the universe cares about me, He knows me by name…
I was driving the other day and this song came on the radio. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard it three dozen times but this time it pierced my heart. I almost had to pull over I was so utterly moved to my essence. If you have 5 minutes hit play.
Love to you today my Friends as we live our legacy one day at a time…
