Everything is Awesome

I recently saw the Lego movie and have had that song in my head for 2 weeks!!!  Sometimes my life does feel awesome and others not so much.  Today I won’t apologize – I am feeling awesome!

As I reflect life is filled with highs and lows.  I find when things are good the memories of the hard times are distance.  Included in that memory is my own weakness and sin.  Past hurts etc.  Things I have worked really hard, with Jesus, to overcome.  I must not forget what I’ve been though but I need to move past the pain of these hurts to move on and be healthy.  To be someone God can work through.

I was pondering this morning as I was thinking about King David.  He screwed up as badly as I have but his gracefulness of God’s love helped to keep him centered.  He was God focused.  He was grateful to be forgiven.  He accepted that he wasn’t perfect.  I really identify with this King.  And as I sit here this morning I realize that gratitude requires humility.  Humility and acceptance for who we are without Christ.  Without Christ I am selfish, arrogant, bossy, power hungry, lack self control, isolated, not a good friend, not a good wife, self absorbed – without Christ is not who I am anymore.  Who are you without Christ?

Just writing this fills my heart with thankfulness and gratitude for what God has done in my life; the peace I enjoy.  I am determined to not let that peace be taken from me or to give it away simply because I think that “I’m all good because everything is awesome” and that I no longer need Christ.  At the end of the day I am a sinner who is greatly loved and who had been saved.  Who is not perfect. I need Christ – my prayer is that I don’t forget that and either do you.
