As I was opening the curtains this morning I had a thought (right about the same time all the cares of the world were beginning to take up their familiar real estate in my mind). The crystal clear thought was that today isn’t about me, today is about God. The weight of my worries instantly lifted with that thought. I felt physically lighter. Next unmistakeable thought: My life isn’t about me, my life is about God. So if each morning that I wake to a new day is all about Jesus then the only real thing that hangs in the balance is my response to Him – that God is glorified.
We need to keep our eyes on Jesus, follow Him, and seek the will of God. He leads us to life in ways that make us never forget about Him.
God goes to great lengths on our behalf to set things right (as I was just reminded by a dear friend). His love for us is immeasurable. He hears our cries and He keeps track of every tear that falls – this, the very same God Who created all things, Who is all powerful, Who counts the stars and knows them each by name.
We don’t have to figure it all out on our own or fear our tomorrows. Only we must always remember that this life is about Him.
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book. Psalm 56:8 NLT
For through Him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see – such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16 NLT

Yes! All about Him! Thank you, again. This beautifully penned writing is a wake up call for me to keep my focus where it should be. God bless you.
Amen. I was reminded this morning that our days are numbered by God alone. No one can change that. There is hope in this beautiful day because it belongs to Him.
