Sometimes it hits me like a ton of bricks. The fact that I sometimes am so focused on what I want God to do for me that I hardly have any energy left to be concerned with what God wants from me. What is more, and this is really difficult to admit, it happens a whole lot more often than it does not. But this reality is not the final word, it is just the first word. Because the final word is the Good News of the Gospel, and how Jesus saves me from myself as he embraces me with unconditional love that truly transforms me so it becomes a whole lot less about me and a whole lot more about God.
