Bet you can not do it for a day
See if you can do it.
Here is Gods challenge to you: try to go one whole day without saying I or me.
Here are some of my personal examples: in Morning Prayer I used to say:” Thank you God for choosing me to be a Christian writer to share Your word.” Instead I have learned to say:” Thank you Holy Spirit for working with me to be a Christian writer." After Morning Prayer and morning communion I sing three songs of praise. I get on Youku which is like YouTube and used to pick songs to sing to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Now I ask Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to pick the songs. You know what? Since doing that the songs chosen are much sweeter, meaningful and filled with joy. One song that seems to continually come up is Jesus lover of my soul It’s all about you and, And He walks with me.
But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
Before you make any decision today STOP and ask God “Okay, my beloved, what do you want me to do or to say?”
See how many times you catch yourself in a day saying I instead of God what do You do think should be done or I did instead of God blessed me with?
There will be two byproducts of this: One: you will see just how for you are self centered instead of Christ centered. Two: as you develop giving your every thought to Jehovah you will find you make less and less bone headed moves throughout the day and you will find a lot less stress in your day. Oh and another good reason to do this: because you are giving the greatest testimony for Jesus. People are watching, your children, family, friends, neighbours and co workers. What a great way to give testimony.
True godliness leaves the world convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the only explanation for you, is Jesus Christ to whose eternally unchanging and altogether adequate "I AM!" your heart has learned to say with unshatterable faith, "Thou art!" Major Ian Thomas
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (God is present) guide my heart and mind to stop and ask for Your divine wisdom before making and decision today. As well my Beloved, Help me to always give You credit instead of foolishly stealing it from You and claiming it for my own. In the name of Him who taught us to always put You first in everything, Jesus Christ I ask. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
