Looking back and remembering myself earlier in life, I shudder to think of how indignant I became at one point.
I was so angry with God for not giving me what I wanted that it was just too much for me to deal with.
The list of things that I held against God could go on into infinity. There was the death of my grandfather when I was eight. I wasn’t one of the “cool kids” in school. There were plenty of things that just didn’t go my way.
And I always knew who to blame. God.
However, in all honesty I can tell you that when something did go my way, I never thought of God much at all.
In life today I try to keep my eyes on all the blessings that God has given me. They seem to far outweigh the difficulties or challenges, or any of the things I wanted but didn’t get.
Now I try to think about what I can bring to a situation. I ask in prayer, “How can I be of service to You today?”
But it is certainly a process. To go from being as selfish as I’ve been in the past to unselfish, is something that requires me to be on guard all the time.
All the time.
It all starts with the simple concept that I am not here on earth so that God can serve me.
It’s the other way around.
