My Own Little World

Yesterday was an "ick" day.
It was just one of those "Ugh" days.
This morning I wake up to realize it was because I got caught up in my own little world.

I know now that it was an attack.
You see it is time for changes.
It's time for new commitments.
So it's time for the enemy of my soul to make me feel unworthy and unable.

It almost worked.
Doubts began to fill my head.
Discouragement was creeping up my back.

... “Get behind Me, Satan!
You are a stumbling block to Me;
for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.”
Matthew 16:23

How easy it is to find myself wrapped up and tripping all over me.
I so get in my way!
I so get in the way of what God is trying to do in and through me...
I have to remember daily, to die daily.
So today I die and live to Him.

Today I say goodbye to my own little world...
I don't like it here anyway. It always makes me frustrated and aggravated and hopeless and just plain old unlikable. I can't even stand myself in my own little world... how on earth could anyone else stand me here. Today I choose to remember that I am of another world. His world. His kingdom. I like it much better in the BIG OF HIM than the little of me!
