{Less is More}

I woke up early this morning and started about a few household chores...

Feeding the pets, starting some laundry, cleaning up some pet hair off the floor that I JUST swept last night *STORY OF MY LIFE!...but I don't mind:)* and I felt this overwhelming since of God's Grace and presence in my life. I love those kind of moments. My reoccuring thought was this...

Without God, I'm nothing. But with Him, I'm somebody. I'm HIS and I'm precious to Him. And you are, too. With Him, I have JOY and PEACE and PURPOSE and I'm so thankful that He loved me first. Because I love Him very much. But I can't help but be reminded that I live selfishly sometimes. As if this life is more about me than Him...because it's not. It's ALL about Him and my days seems, well...MORE COMPLETE when I live it for Him instead of me. So my thought for this beautiful Sunday morning is this:

“He must increase, but I must decrease”(John 3:30)

Because life should be nothing LESS than MORE of Him...
