Me, Myself, and I

Romans 13:11 (KJV)
And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.

*Many people call themselves believers, but rarely take heed to the power and capabilities of what that title truly means. They are sleeping on their capabilities and daily favor wiyh possibility...We hold the ability to impact the world on a daily basis, to look beyond ourselves and people who make up our own little world, and see life for more then just the daily activities we are use to partaking in....There are so many people who naturally wake up in the morning dreading the day, frustrated because someone didn't give them their way, or are naturally consumed with themselves and their plans. However, life is about more then you, yourself, and your world..There are people reaching out, and waiting to be impacted daily; souls that need saving, and lives awaiting the influence of Godly change that lives in you; or even just people outside yourself that need your compassion or just your respect that they have feelings and a life too. It is amazing how we are consumed with ourselves, how we are so quick to have an attitude, or willing to provide an unnecessary opinion or take action about things that do not matter....YET, rarely or never consult God as to what to say or how to move forward. Yes, we are human, make mistakes, have needs, and desire attention. However, imagine if you were capable of finding the balance of giving others attention just as much as you give yourself. Of course be led by God in these efforts because we need balance. (I for one have found myself being overly utilized, and have needed to take a step back.) However, when God sees that you are consumed with yourself or what you can get out of others, (be it bc of greed or bc you feel like they owe you something), that is a major problem. Let's take the time to look beyond ourselves this week, and not just see it your way...See things the way God wants you to view it/him/her. We are living in the last days...Taking action and being selfless with balance is needed more then you know. Learn to understand just as much as you desire...
