Iâ€™m finally reading Crazy Love.Â My friend, Melissa, encouraged me to read it a while back and I bought it, only to sit it on my nightstand to â€˜get to it later.â€™Â Well, now is later.Â I picked it up on Sunday and am trying to allow God to speak to me through such an amazing speaker and writer, Francis Chan.
Chapter 2 got me!Â It talks about something you and I know already but need reminding of on a moment-by-moment basisâ€¦This life storyâ€™s main character is not me, not you, not the celebrity, not even the most God-used speakers and writers, but God.Â God alone.Â Sometimes, though, donâ€™t we all seem to act like itâ€™s about us, even a little?Â Like Francis Chan puts it, we know that God is holy, but â€œI am still dumb enough to forget that life is all about God and not about me at all.â€
I thought about itâ€¦What am I doing with my little part of this story called life? Am I making much of God or much of Kristi?Â Am I living eternally minded in how I parent, how I relate to my husband, how I interact with my friends and family?Â Or am I getting caught up in this fast-paced life that can seem to be about my stuff, my circumstances, my commitments?
I am challenged today to live life to make much of my Creator, my Savior, the One Who owns this story anyway.
What about you?
