God is the most important thing in my life. Without him I wouldn’t be here alive today. I always think about that. So its a good thing he is first in my life. This makes me a better mother, daughter,friend a better person in general. If I try and make any person I care for the center of my life,they will fail me. People fail,everyone makes mistakes including myself .We ALL fail sometimes. So we should not put all of our high expectations on others. If we do that ,well we have put them in the place that belongs to God. You have seen people who are so amazing ,they love God and are so kind.But the minute they make a mistake people are quick to say “Christians are phonies” You see we expect to much out of people .WE should be giving it our all, when it comes to our Relationship with the Lord.Investing real time with God so we can know him more intimately. When he is your primary focus your mind becomes more clear, you view people differently and you become more forgiving. Balance is what we need. Love people but don’t make them your God.Your emotional needs are important …let the Lord help you in this.
32-33 “Stand up for me against world opinion and I’ll stand up for you before my Father in heaven. If you turn tail and run, do you think I’ll cover for you?
34-37 “Don’t think I’ve come to make life cozy. I’ve come to cut—make a sharp knife-cut between son and father, daughter and mother, bride and mother-in-law—cut through these cozy domestic arrangements and free you for God. Well-meaning family members can be your worst enemies. If you prefer father or mother over me, you don’t deserve me. If you prefer son or daughter over me, you don’t deserve me.
38-39 “If you don’t go all the way with me, through thick and thin, you don’t deserve me. If your first concern is to look after yourself, you’ll never find yourself. But if you forget about yourself and look to me, you’ll find both yourself and me.
