U Turn

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[d] is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17)

God’s will over my will.

That is the message that I have gotten.  I have observed that things become harder when I try to do things my way.  That it does not matter what happens to me here in this world.  Just as long as I obey God’s will.  Just as long as I am under His care then it will be alright.  I am reminded not to love the world.  This means I should not focus on what I want–on the blessing but rather focus on the Giver of the blessing.  God over everything.  God as the center.  Exercising care not to commit idolatry–by God’s grace.
