Plans change...

1 John 3:16 NIV

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
What would Jesus do?  Did he ever think of himself first?  Did he ever say oh I will rescue you from the depths of despair but not before I look for this really cool new shirt.  Did he say I will heal you from your illness but not before I get a good nap in?   No Jesus gave up everything about his life, in the midst of all people he was the true match to unselfishness.   Today I find myself on the brink of selfishness, teetering on wanting to do a good deed and be the bigger person and wanting to wallow in my sorrows.  My decision, give it to Jesus he knows what to do with it better than I do♥
