All About The "I"


Isaiah 55: 8-11"I don't think the way you think. The way you work isn't the way I work." God's Decree."For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.

I have found myself in more than one conversation lately concerning the will of God for my life. Each time I find myself saying things like "I have tried this, I have tried that, I am going to do this, I think I will do that, I’m going to do that". All of which have turned out to be nothing but a waste of time talking and thinking about things I wanted to do. Twice this week I have been challenged on using the word "I" in these terms. If you noticed there is nothing in the statements above that lends itself to God. There is only "I".

So what do I think about this? After being where "I" have been for the past two years, by the way, was with an incredible water sports ministry called In His Wakes, I have decided that God has me here for a reason, a reason that I can not explain. There has been a great deal of thought put into the reason God allowed me to depart form this great ministry. I must omit I have tried to explain it many times, all the while using the terms "I" and "me".

This week "I" learned that God does have an incredible plan in the mist waiting for me. Do I know what it is? No! But God does and "I" am content to wait on Him and learn and prepare myself for the next chapter in the story as GOD writes it, not "I".

Isaiah 55: 8-11 sums it up. We all know these verses and are quick to make them ours but the reality is we like doing things our way, we like knowing the plan. Lets get humble in the site of God and be big enough and honest enough to say "I" ain’t got it figured out but God does.
