Wherever you’re at, the mindset is Huge. We like instant…everything. Mind over matter. Yet, most of us can agree that many times in our lives we say through gritted teeth “Help me Jesus”. Instead of allowing circumstances, drama, death, bitterness, sickness, and more dictate your feelings…you live based on knowing Who You Are. You’re Core. So, everyday is a blessing no matter what happens. Again, “Help me Jesus”.
I woke up and was staring off trying to figure out why I had seen all of this. Then, HE reminded me of John 21: 15-23. Jesus in this scripture is asking the disciple named Peter 3 times if he truly Loved Him. Every time Peter responds with a “Yes, you know that I Love you”. Each time Jesus then says to either feed or take care of my lambs and sheep.
Wow. As I read it my heart just broke and knew I’ve taken the people and area I’ve been given with an attitude of…dissatisfaction. I was treating the things I was given as if they were “leftover trash”. You get my point. So, this shift in attitude, peace, and joy in the day-to-day has come from seeking HIM and doing the best with what I’ve been given.
This is a very hard lesson to learn. If my approach of seeking HIM is preposterous to you…THEN WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?! Because I guarantee you anything else will leave you dry, empty, and unsatisfied. What have you been given that you’re not doing the best with? Are you really doing the best with what you’ve been given or have a nasty attitude about it all?
