Selfish Sunday

Humans are basically selfish. 

I say it that way because I don't want to admit that I am basically selfish - just easier to pin it on the entire human race!

I am really selfish.  Hurts to admit it...but it is so TRUE.  My disappointments, discouragements and recent struggles rest upon the FACT that I act as though it's ALL ABOUT ME!  Forgive me friends and family.  FORGIVE ME LORD! 

Yesterday was one of those days where I gave in to discouragement and anxiety.  Please tell me some of you have days like this!  The longer the day went on...the more sorry I began to feel for myself.  A personal, ugly pity party!  Didn't get better when I found I couldn't sleep well for the worry and sadness that I had surrendered to.  Last thing I wanted to do was open the Word and deal with the TRUTH! 

Let it go on way too long...then opened my Bible and jumped in to 2 Corinthians 5.  'He became sin who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."  2 Cor. 5:21



2 Corinthians 5:15  " And He died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for Him Who for their sake died and was raised."

New perspective this a.m.!  It's NOT all about ME!  It's all about HIM!

I think I need to put 2 Cor. 5:15 somewhere I can see it A LOT during the day!
