Who’s In Control

I am trying to regain control of my life. One day at a time. Some days I find my walk on the path… 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

Found this recently. I wrote it in a January 1, 1999 journal. (We didn’t call it blog then)

Psalm 1:6 (NLT)
For the Lord watches over the path of the godly.

He also provides assurance for following Him. God loves His creations, He takes care of His things. But, we have to be godly.

What is a godly person? Is it a “do not” person or a “do” person? A godly person delights in doing everything the Lord wants, day and night they think about His love. I want to be a godly person.

Fast forward 18 years…I know I’ve yelled at God a lot over those years. But I have also relied a lot for His guidance.

Psalm 46:10 (NLT)
“Be still, and know that I am God!
    I will be honored by every nation.
    I will be honored throughout the world.”

You know what? It’s not about regaining control… it’s about letting loose and letting God watch over my path. Doing everything I can to be a godly person. Time to start my hike.

How do I see me.

“It’s always fascinating how people see us versus how we see ourselves.” Not my words, my friend’s words. I’d never thought about it that way. Important to hang around wise/smart people.

Questions…

How do you see me? How do I see me? How do you see you? How do I (others) see you? How does God want us to be seen? (Sorry so deep…)

When I show up at a meeting, (and I do a lot). Am I an “ugg” or engaged. I realized recently I can be an “ugg”. So. From now on before going into the meeting I will stop and ask God to not let me be an “ugg” but an encouragement. That’s how I want to be seen.

1 Corinthians 11:1
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

Thanks friend.
