A good friend of mine reminded me today how truly blessed I am. He reminded me that every breath I breathe comes from God, and it is only by him that I have life.
He reminded me that God has given me everything I need, and yet God owes me nothing.
He reminded me that partaking in the empty things leaves you just that, empty... and partaking in the things of God; service, community, church, the bible, right relationships... well as he would say; "what more do ya need?"
God, I want to live as if my life is lived by someone else; your Son Jesus Christ. If there's anything in me that does not fit with you, may they be stripped away. I know that in order for me to truly live, it must be this way. Jesus is risen! May he arise within me. May I become less and he become greater.
