Us or The Cross

I came across a good message this morning. At first I was confused as it talked about a funeral will help. As I read on, I realized the importance and what the message was saying. It came from Prime Time With God. It started out with Today's Prayer and it went like this:

Today's Prayer
Lord, let me be a simple fool, not a hardened fool. Though I make many mistakes in life, I want to learn from those mistakes. I want to improve; to do what is right. As the Bible says, to be a "simple fool." Please never let me become a hardened fool who does not listen or learn from mistakes. I pray for your guidance, direction, and wisdom each and every day. Thank you for hearing me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

The importance of the message was to remind us that there needs to be less of us and more of Christ and the Cross. When we are baptized it is like the crucifixion of Christ on the Cross. He died and was risen. We are wiped clean of our sins, "died," and were given a new life, "rose again." We were given a new birth, a new begining.

Therefore with that new begining, we should be concentrating on being more Christ like. We should be thinking less of ourselves, as it's not about us, and concentrating more on how we should be more like Christ.

Have a beautiful blessed day. Make a ripple that keeps going and reaches out. May the Lord richly and abundantly bless you always. Remember to P.U.S.H.

Hi NayLahKnee! That is awesome!

P.U.S.H. means (I had to ask too) Pray Until Something Happens.
Hon at God is our Love taught me that one. I liked it and started using it. :)
