Hey ya’ll it’s Lizzie with another “Women in the Word.” Today my topic is “Too Busy Being Me.” The scripture we are looking at is Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”
I love my job. It provides me with the opportunity to share my relationship with Christ while doing what I love. I believe God gave me this platform to live a fun, full, and abundant life, while serving Him and sharing the gospel. I’m going to push my big lump of pride to the side for a few minutes and get real; really real.
Believe it or not I was a control freak. I thought I could do everything on my own, and my way. It makes me sad to think I didn’t really consider God. I’m going to whisper to myself “it’s because I was young and foolish”, but the truth is I wasn’t being all God wanted me to be. Here’s where the party goes boom! I was convicted like “girl get yoself in church and grow your faith.” Once I made that decision my life has never been the same. Allow me to share a few of the things God was doing in my life. He saved me; it doesn’t get better than that. He forgave me. He calmed the storm in me that I couldn’t calm myself. Believe me it was a big, raging hurricane, like a category…well actually it was off the charts. But here comes the best part, He died for me and He died for you. Give your life to Him and watch what He can do for you.
