“I am nothing.”
Yes, you have read that statement correctly. I am nothing, a nobody. First and foremost, I would like to give total glory and honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for the breath of life you have given to me and thank you for consuming me with your holy spirit so that I may hear and seek you and you alone. I am nothing.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1 (NIV)
I’ve always been told I should do this but never actually known what this is. All I’ve ever done in my life was talk. Talk about my life, my God and my feelings on current issues. I haven’t always been saved. I love saying that. I haven’t always been saved. It’s the truth, I haven’t but yet it seems like I have. I don’t like telling people my “story” because quite frankly a story gives an assumption that there is a beginning and an end right? I surly have a beginning but I have no end. (Well not yet!) This is my message, my journey if I may add.
“I love you”
Yes I really do, I love everyone I have come in contact with. I love hearing your messages and sharing mine. I’m not your typical Evangelical Christian nor do I have a similar story. I’m not white, I come from a single parent home, and I’m not rich not anywhere near it. I struggled, I fought. I overcame my two year struggle with depression; I’ve tried many times to commit suicide. I am nothing. I don’t want anything. This is not about me. This, my friend is about you. This is about me helping you overcome whatever you are dealing with through Christ. I will use the talents and the gifts Christ has given me to do whatever I can do to help you.
I say the same prayer every day when I wake up adding things when necessary.
“Lord I am nothing, you are everything. Mold me and shape me into your perfect will. The woman in Christ you designed for me long ago. Lord I am nothing but through you I am everything. I can do anything with you and only through you I will gain your kingdom. Keep me in the palm of your hand. Lord I repent of all the things I’ve done knowingly and unknowingly Lord Jesus. Thank you for everything you are doing, have done and are going to do in my life. I love you. In Jesus precious name, Amen.”
I pray to lose more and more of myself everyday because I am nothing and this is not about me. This is about what God is doing in me, what my God needs me to do on this earth. The more we let go of our own understanding the more you see who God is, what he is doing and what our God is doing in your life. The path he wants you to go, the glorious life he planned for you so long okay.
Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.- Psalm 37:25
