It’s Not About You, Boo!
1 Corinthians 7 verse 7 makes it clear: marriage ain’t about you! The One who created us tells us to find one, and keep ’em. Selfishness destroys all it touches, we know this deep down, yet I see so much of it in today’s culture. If we’ll ever needed an example of flesh warring against Spirit all we need to do is turn on the nightly news or pick up a paper. It’s there for all to see. Will we take note, and change our ways?
Everything in this world is designed to distract, and I admit I often fall for this subtle scheme. I forget to be patient and persistent, knowing that as long as I keep the Main Thing the main thing I will weather any storm in confidence and peace. I know we reach our destiny one step at a time, one day at a time but find I’m prone to make two huge errors in judgment: charge ahead into uncharted waters and leave my Father behind, or not step out to where I feel called because of fear. Am I alone I this? I don’t think so.
How can I live in Him if I’m not in tune with His leading? The older I get the more I can relate to David, who was quick to repent. I find I’m doing a lot of that lately. Yet I’d rather do what Joyce Meyer calls, “step out and find out,” than not step out it at all.
My greatest fear is not fulfilling my destiny, the reason He chose to birth me in the earth. My passion has recently become to bring others along for the ride. I know my core values and refuse to compromise them, despite what current culture or the ACLU say. I choose to let my little light shine and be true to my boo. My man as well as my God. I don’t want to stand before Him and hear, “Well …?” I want the “done”. How ’bout you?
Kari, the boo’d up
