Not About Me...

Father break my heart for what breaks Yours

Give me open hands and open doors

and put Your Light in my eyes and let me see

That my own little world is not about me.

~Matthew West

Not about me. Not about me? Not about me?! You've got to be kidding.

No, really. I'm sitting here at my computer and I have to say I'm embarrassed. I've acted all day as if "my own little world" is all about me. Yeah, well in my world it very well may be all about me... but in the real world, where my little world happens to reside, it is not all about me.

I have gotten bent out of shape today over things that will not matter next week. (I'd say they won't matter tomorrow, but they will. They'll matter Thursday, too... but after that, not so much.) I've let situations get the best of me. I've let other people get the better of me. I've let my negative attitude win. How dare me!

Tomorrow I will remember that it is not all about me. In fact, it's not even a little bit about me from 7:30-2:40. It's all about 16 other people who depend on me to keep it in check. I'll do that because they deserve it.

  1. Thank you for this post! I had a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day (just like Alexander in the book!). Everything you said about your day can be said about mine. SO true!
