From..A Shelter in the Storm by Paul David Tripp
I read this yesterday and have been thinking about what that really means ever since. This is not a new truth but one I need to be constantly be reminded of because it is so easy to be caught up in the day to day stuff of life and forget that it's not all about me...I'll be honest I frequently think it's all about me. I may not say that out loud but will convey that with my actions and attitudes. I need to remember...I am one of his chosen, to be used as he chooses for his plans and purposes.
"I have been chosen to live for the glory of another" My life is not about me, but a vehicle that God is using for his plans and purposes to bring glory to himself. So when things get messy or don't go as planned or seem absolutely out of control, I need to have that kingdom mentality...remembering God has a plan and a purpose for every situation.
