It is NOT about US

Different Walks - Same God

A great chum of mine reminded me today that I haven't blogged in about 17 days.
I knew that... and I tried..
It just cannot happen when my heart so full.

I had to focus on what is true, lovely, honest, pure ,, of good report...
To keep my mind and heart free from distraction.

Are you like this?  Do you see all of the people that you know and even some that you don't ...through God's eyes?

Look around this week.   We are walking such different walks.  Some with the Lord by their side, and some without.

There are a lot of people enduring trials, suffering pain,others are rejoicing over new seasons in their lives.

But, God is always the same... Yesterday, TODAY, and Forever!

What comfort we can share with those that don't have any hope!
When I look or talk to someone .....this perspective helps me see past my own cares and concerns and try and focus on them,, then and there....
That they are one of God's creations - and my life is not even the same walk that they have.

I have a lot of friends/family whom share similar daily lives with me... but, we all share our own unique Journey with God.
Am I on the path that HE wants for me?
Am I caring about others and what impact I am having on their Journey.

It is not about US.. is it?
It is about what are WE doing for God and for Others.
Let's not compare our lives with that of another.  We all have a different purpose.

My daily challenge-
Remember that my journey needs to be what God wants,,,not what I want... and I need to remember that we all have a different walk - but GOD is the same... and Boy!  Does HE love us all!

I hope you know that you don't have to walk your Journey Alone...  Let God take your Hand this week and guide you.

Is God using you to walk beside another this week?  I pray that I will stay on His chosen path for me.

    And I missed you too!

    God has been so good and I pray daily that I could live a better life and serve him better day by day.

    Yes, many people think it is all about US (Them) and yet how much happier would they/we be if we served God full heartedly without reserves. Thanks for the reminder.

    September this is so well said. This is something that has been on my heart for quite awhile now .. just making sure that I am in the middle of where He wants me to be, and not being led by my own ambitions.

    Thank you for sharing this! Missing you :)
