What does my life say? Is it about me or about others? I don't want to be a part of the “it’s all about me” generation. I want my heart to be broken for others. I want my life to make a difference. Many years ago I saw a bumper sticker that read, "Is your life a message or a mess?" It asked me if I had an anchored purpose or if I was like debris just floating around with no anchor.
Lord, challenge me to examine my life– moments–my thoughts–my actions, and to really see if you are my reason for existence. If you are my first love, I need to live it. James was explicit when he penned that "faith without works in dead". Likewise, he let me know that works without faith has little meaning. If I love you, Jesus, my life is not all about me. It is about you, and it is about others. I should live my faith in action for others. I should be on the front lines for you. So where am I now? Where am I? You know where I am. Am I ready to be truthful with you? Am I really ready to examine my heart, because that examination will be hard, and will reveal all–what I need to surrender, and how I need to allow you to be more that the little I am? Am I prepared to be a message for you instead of a mess with no purpose? Lord, help me be real with you so that I can be real with others.
