All About

“We make life so much more complicated when we think life is ‘all about me.’  The rest of the world never cooperates.  No one else got the memo.  When we see ourselves as the center of the universe, we live in constant frustration because the rest of creation refuses to revolve around us.

“Life vastly simplifies, and satisfaction greatly amplifies when we begin to realize our awesome roles.  God is God.  From our perspective, it’s all about Him.  Thank goodness, He is the center of the universe.  So, how can we live with such a God-centered mentality?  Freely!  Because from God’s perspective, it’s all about us.  We seek to please Him. He seeks to perfect us – and life works.  Not without pain, but with purpose.

“Without the Potter, clay is just dirt.  ‘The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being’ (Genesis 2:7).

“’I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me (Isaiah 46:9).’”
