i was reminded today that it's not about me. that my gifts, my talents, my abilities were not given to me by God to prove to the world how good i am. or how much people like me. or how much i fit in
because i don't fit in. not really. and truth be told, i don't want to.
i don't want to be like everyone else. i don't want to be the image of the person next to me. i want to stand out. to make a difference. to make my life count.
when people see me, i don't want them to think i've done anything good on my own. i don't want them to give me credit for what they think i've accomplished in life. i don't want them to see me and not see Him.
His sacrifice. His promises. His love.
that's what changed me. that's what motivates me.
that's who He is.
and that's who i strive to be.
more like Him.
i don't want to die with any doubt that God was the most important thing in my life. i don't want people to see me and not see Him. i don't want them to care more about me at all.
because it's not about me anyway.
it's about Him.
