Day 1 – It All Starts With God

Point to Ponder: It’s not about me

Verse to Remember: “Everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him.” Colossians 1:16b (MSG)

Question to Consider: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?

This is an interesting question. In the business world, maybe even life in general, it’s all about planning your career path and planning your next move. I’ve never been like that, even in times like these where I’m unemployed and it all seems so out of control. Even though I’m not serving God (in the eyes of some) and I’m not in as deep/close a relationship with Him I still trust that he will open and close the doors for me. I trust that He will guide my path and lead me to where He wants me to be. Although I have to say that I feel a bit selfish about that because it’s like I’m using God, but I know that He knows my heart and understands me.

If it were all about me and I didn’t trust God my life would probably be in a very different path, and who knows probably a lot less happy than I am. I’d have probably gone to Bible school years ago (not that there is anything wrong with that) and done everything to become a fulltime missionary. But that’s not what God had in my mind for me, at least not yet. I’m still hoping that someday I’ll be able to do both, work in my field of expertise and do missions on the side.

So, how can I remind myself that it’s about living for God and not myself? I don’t know, I guess I just have to take one day at a time and acknowledge Him in all things.
