God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. Therefore, as the Scriptures say,
“If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”
1 Corinthians 1:30-31
Our world is full to the brim with so many people who want to talk about themselves and point a light on what THEY are doing. You can see post after post where people are recording their good deeds. I understand we do need to show or talk about GOOD stuff more often, because we are bombarded with the ugly, bad and worse when we watch world news. But really, do we want to show others ourselves? Do we want to shine a light on how awesome we are? Do we want others to be able to brag on us? I find that to be quite embarrassing when it happens. Sure, I appreciate being appreciated, but I want people to know WHY I am able to do what I do. It’s not because I’m continuously striving to impress others. It’s not because I want people to look at me! I’m not some “hero” or someone who wants to be put above others. I’m just a person who wants to be used for good. I want to shine a light on who should really get our attention.
I do not intend on bragging about myself. Not ever. I have talents and abilities only because God has gifted them to me. He sends them through me so that I may bless others. I thank Him so much for ALL!
So it’s not me. It’s not the world around me. It’s the one inside of me who is greater than anyone or anything in this world.
I WANNA BRAG A LITTLE… (or a lot).
When my light shines…
I want to show you WHO REALLY deserves all the credit: MY GOD!
My God allows me to do what I do. I thank Him and give Him all the glory!!!
