Quit Subscribing

Every thought that enters your mind shouldn’t be subscribed too. The things you think on become apart of you; therefore, you need to be careful of what you give thought too. I realize that one of my short comings is not meditating enough on things that are good for my mind, heart & soul. I’m learning to dismiss certain thoughts & that not all thoughts that enter your minds gate are meant to stay.

As I write this blog, I’m most certainly having a “to me, from me” conversation of course with the intent to bless others in between. I know one thing, a transformed mind is what I need, daily.

Selfish? or Selfless??

There’s a lot to be said about the words selfish and selfless

Dictionary definitions: selfish – Lacking consideration for others; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure; selfless – Concerned more with the needs and wishes of others than with one’s own.

I realize to arrive to the place of selflessness you will go through a process, there’s A LOT of stuff God has to work out of you in order to get to the place of putting someone else’s needs before your own. I mean, let’s be real, we were born selfish, it was in our nature from birth. When you were a baby, you cried because you needed to eat, be changed, be held, go to sleep.  As a small child  you were only worried about yourself, your needs, what you wanted. Teenage years, you cared about things that benefited you, what you needed, desired, had to have and then you arrive to adulthood…

Now, the layers of selfishness stacked upon you over time, so it takes just as much time to delayer you; so then, God steps in… you allow Christ full access to you life and He begins to take you on the journey of placing others needs before your own.  You go through a series of situations, each one working out a selfish characteristic that your heart once held; arriving to today!  I find myself desiring to be more selfless and less selfish and when God grants me that request, life seems to be so much more rewarding…

Questions To Consider: Are you giving more than you’re getting? When you give, are you giving because it’s something you really want to do? Or do you give because that’s what “everyone” expects you to do?  When you give; does it benefit you? Or do you sincerely have the best interest of the one you’re helping in mind??
