It's amazing how a good dose of perspective can change everything. I spend most of my time suffering with spiritual amnesia. In times like this the fog clears and I am reminded of a very crucial truth. This life was never meant to be about me. It's not about my comfort, my circumstances, my plans, my to-do list, ect. It is not about me. I was created to glorify Christ and so was my husband and my children. My life should be oriented around that one single thing. It so is not. If I'm truly honest with myself, it's easy to see my life is oriented around me. How does one orient their life to glorify Christ? The answer is easy but the application is most difficult. We are called to love. This kind of love comes at a great cost, dying to self. Father may you open my eyes and cure me of my spiritual amnesia. Please teach me how to love like you do so that I too may be crucified with you.
All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one. (Psalm 14:3 NIV)
I don't know whether to be discouraged by this or relieved. Mostly it makes me so incredibly thankful for God's amazing grace. The closer I draw to Christ the more and more aware I become of my desperate need for this precious grace.
