The Best Thing

I find my life when I lose it in you

I gain control when I give it to you

I save my life when I let you save me

Yeah the best thing I can do for me is you…

The best thing by Jonathan Mcreynolds

I started off this week with a yoga workout. It was energizing and I felt great after. As with every workout, at the beginning you set your intentions. My intention today was to be productive and practice gratefulness.

Every time I hear this song by Jonathan Mcreynolds it makes me think of how amazing my Abba is. Falling in love with Jesus really is the best thing I’ve ever done. So when I really think about the words.

I find my life when I lose it in you…

Everything I know about myself was shown to me as I searched for God’s purpose for my life. I learn more about how He wants me to live, behave, love and be every single day.

I gain control when I give it to you…

When my life is turned upside down I’ve found that I accomplish more when I let God lead me. He shows me what to focus on now and what to leave for later.

I save my life when I let you save me…

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? (Mark 8:36)

Nothing that I can accomplish in this life is more important than my relationship with my Abba. I want to be successful but if that means I have to turn away from my faith to get it…that isn’t success to me. Success to me is accomplishing everything that God wants me to accomplish. To know that I am walking in my God given purpose.

Allowing God to direct me is the best choice I’ve ever made. He has shown me my path and now it is up to me to walk it. And in Jesus name I won’t ever quit.
