More of Him and Less of Me!! That has been my focus for this year. Wow, what a challenge.
Keeping my eyes on my Savior, looking away from all that would distract me, and thinking on the Cross, causes me to shrink in humility. My flesh gets distracted from whats really important... which is HIM!! Jesus, Yeshua, my Redeemer, my Lord and my God.
I named this blog Created to Bring HIM Glory, because that is what we are all created to do. Not to glorify ourselves and our "so-called" victories, but to magnify HIM in everything we do. That is my heart's desire, but my deceitful heart gets in the way!!!
I've been praying more and more that He would help me to see my selfishness, in the little ways that I put myself first. And that is a dangerous prayer. I've been humbled in so many ways, that its almost embarrassing. But...
Just as John Newton has been quoted to say, I like to say as well, "I am a great sinner, but I have a great Savior!" The more I get closer to Christ, the more I realize I need Him and His saving power and grace on the Cross!!
Resurrection Day is almost here. Our Savior lives and His death on the Cross and resurrection from the dead applies to every single day of our lives. Reflecting keeps us in focus, keeps us on the narrow path toward holiness, and should always keep us humble.
Reflect with me!!
