The Person God Wants Me to Be...

A few days ago I posted my daily GRACE-WORDS ....

"Allow God to change you from who you were yesterday to the person He wants you to be today!" © GRACE-WORDS

I have changed much in the past few years and this has been especially true over the past month. God is at work in my life and I want to honor Him by being the person that He wants me to be -- not the person that the world thinks that I should be.

My life has taken many twists and turns over the past year. I've had moments of excitement, times of agony, have been lied to, and my feelings have been dismissed. Like many of you, I have been liked and disliked, understood and misunderstood, accepted and rejected. 

The bottom line of all of this is that I cannot do anything about how others treat me except to be the person that God wants me to be today. That may be different than yesterday or tomorrow. I must focus on allowing God to work in my life today! 

We can't worry about being the person that the world wants us to be. It's not our job to please everyone or do everything that they want us to do. My role is to follow God's plan for my life. Simple, yet we've made it complex by adding in the human element of imperfection. We serve a perfect God who has a perfect plan. Why do we care about the imperfect world and its imperfect plan?

As you go about your day, remember that God has control and all the decisions you make should be influenced by Him. He may use others to help us, but I do not believe that He uses others to bring us down. If you place yourself in the center of God's will and give it ALL over to Him, that's enough because He's got your life in His hands!

That's a great place to be --

Under HIS Grace...
