It's not about me, it is all about Him

What can I do to glorify God? I’ve been spinning my wheels thinking of ways to drive traffic to my website. What articles should I write? What will bring in the best results? All this time failing to see that what really matters, it’s not about me, it’s all about Him.

It's not about Me

I know when I’m on to something, I’ll get distracted. When the writing is flowing and my attention gets pulled away. It could be a phone call, a loud noise, or even a sneeze; I realize I’m getting hit. Then I know this is it. This is what I should be writing about. The words come faster than I can put them in my keyboard. The misspellings are abound, I can’t back up now, I’ll check it later.

The words are flowing; I’m a master of words. No wait, it’s not about me, it’s all about Him. I’ll let the words flow from the Holy Spirit to the paper. His hands guide mine. His voice speaks through me. It’s not about me, it’s to glorify Him.

This is the reason I do what I do. This is why I write. I have a message, seems simple enough but it matters. It’s important enough to cause me to distress. It’s imperial enough to make me wander off the page. It’s simple enough that I don’t need to work hard at it. It’s ideal enough that everyone can use it. It’s figuratively enough that it matters. And it loves enough that God wants to use me.

I’ll listen to the Master. I’ll let His words be my words. If I fail, it’s so that I can get back up again. I’m learning in the process. It will take time, but if I keep going, He will use me to show the world His great love. He continues to show His grace and beauty. He loves no matter what.

To make a difference

My calling has always been to make a difference. I want to change things. I realize I cannot change the world, but I can change my mind.

I dream of that day when the world will be at peace. I long for the day I am reunited with my loved ones. I desire the day, when all my brothers and sisters are living righteously.

I keep plugging away at this keyboard, hoping one day my work will get noticed. Dreaming of the day when love calls out and changes the heart of the wicked.

Beautifying existence of memories found in the back of my mind, I write. I shape the words into pictures. I love what I do but I remember, it’s not about me, it’s all about Him.

God works in mysterious ways. This may not be the way I approach it, but He is showing me that He is still there. He cares enough. He is teaching me new ideas. He loves me in spite of everything. For it’s not about me, it’s all about Him.

He loves

In my “aha moment” I’m awakened to the knowledge that the traffic to my website is driven by my desire to please Him. For in everything I do is to gratify Him.

Delighted by the thought that one day, He will say to me, “well done, good and faithful servant. You have been given little, now I will give you a lot. You have used the resources given to you. I am well pleased.” These are the words I long to hear.

He has come to teach me, He desires me to reach my goals, and He loves, oh how He loves me. For it’s not about me, it’s all about Him.

For my plans are not His plans and His ways are not my ways, I realize that all things will work out for His glory.

Dedication

This is dedicated to my loving parents. You taught me what it means to love. I love and miss you dearly.

FaithDream, you are so very right. It is all about Him, every word, every breath. I fail many times. And He forgives me and allows me to snuggle closer into the arms that hung on a tree for me.

You are beautiful to God and to the many who adore you here on HubPages and elsewhere. You ARE all about Him dearest one.

I am full of admiration for your will to surrender everything to "him". This is the real effort to leave the ego behind and turn into a real human being. I can sense that you feel "his presence" in your life.

You are a real inspiration. Thanks for being who you are.

Thank you all for your kind and encouraging words. This is why I continue to write on HubPages. Each of you inspire me!

I forget sometimes why I write and I can get so caught up with the traffic and earnings. When I exam why I'm really here, it's all about sharing a message. Your words inspire me to continue doing just that.

Thank you sherrylou. I appreciate and welcome your comments.

Thank you Apostle Jack, I appreciate your comments.

Thank you Hyphenbird, you words always inspire me. I appreciate you.

Thank you Goodpal, you are so kind. I appreciate your words of encouragement and you are correct, HE is the reason for everything.

so true. I write because I love to share His awesomeness and goodness plain and simple. The numbers can be distracting at times.

Thanks Tamarajo. I agree, when I look at the stats I get caught up with the numbers. I love sharing a positive message and that is what I need to keep my focus on.

Thanks for sharing your comments.

we ought to make the difference being "the salt of the Earth" =)

I write here at first because that's what my Dad wants me to but later I found out that I was indeed doing this for Him, to share about Him and to learn more about Him through people like you at Hubpages..

God bless and more powers

This does seem to happen all to often to so many woman, we need to know when to say no and we need some me time even if it does seem or sound selfish. We should be worth it enough to our man, for them to give this to us.
