I think we can all relate to this topic – selfishness. We get in this mode where we think we know what we want, but then we don't realize that our focus has been skewed, perhaps even a bit fuzzy.
Why discuss such a topic – because I just recently realized that my desires and wants were getting in the way of what was best. It's hard when you step back and see the pettiness of your heart – life is about working towards a good for all, not just me. I'm sure this isn't upheld by all or even many, but I am not responsible for the many – I am responsible for me.
Sometimes I just need God to slap me, drop me, or drop kick me to get my attention. Sometimes he allows us to get our desires (or what we think are our desires) only to use it as a teaching tool to show us what is really going on in our hearts. See, selfishness, is a heart matter – it means I am thinking about more of me and less of HIM. I think I am probably much harder on myself then I could be, but then leading is never easy – if it were, everyone would be doing it.
Bottom Line: Less of me, more of HIM – I am still clay and He is still shaping me – apparently, I still need more work in this area and that's fine by me.
