“His Will or Yours?”

As I wade through my day and think of other things I would rather be doing, I also think of; what is it that God wants me to be doing? One thing that reminds me of how small my plans are is when I read in the book of Proverbs how man’s heart might direct his plans, but it is God who guides his feet.

Maybe what we as Christians should be concerning ourselves with is those who are out in the world standing up for Jesus, risking all for His glory.  It is easy to wrap our prayer lives up in our own little world, especially when we are continually asking for things that maybe we should not.  A better question to ask ourselves is; is what we are asking God for within His will for us or our will for Him?

Whatever we do it is our prayers and time studying the Bible that prepares us for each day; giving us the spiritual nourishment and strength to do what God asks of us.

Praise God and may the Kingdom of Jesus Christ reign on earth as it does in Heaven!

“Too Easy”

Today I used my favorite response to someone who told me “thank you” for something I did by saying “Too easy”.  My response might sound simple, but in fact it means more to me than just a simple or quick response.

When I say to someone “Too easy” there is actually a meaning behind it that for me is a reminder of how I can help that person or how I can make that person simply smile.  The “Too easy” part may not necessarily be the easy side of this, as a matter of fact sometimes it can be the hard part.  For me the hard part is where I learn the most about what God wants for me and how I can be a better person.

So how about the easily done things you ask?  Well, they are actually easy and are usually the acts that add up over time keeping me in practice for the hard ones.  Now back to the “Too easy” part.

If you happen to be around me and I do something for you and use the response “Too easy” that means that you owe me nothing in return.  I mean that 100%; you do not have to return the favor.  If you do it is because you have intentions of paying something forward, then forward from me it will go.

The way I see it is actually pretty simple.  If I do something to help someone it boils down to the one easy step in all of this; deciding to do so.  Deciding to do something good for someone else should be a decision as easy as taking our next breath; not something we ponder, research or debate about.

If I do good, then to me that means I am being obedient  And when God puts it on my heart to do good and I know it is from Him I am even more honored to follow through with the act.  So if you run out of things to say when someone asks you for a favor or help, try saying “Too easy” you might be surprised what it does for the other person and you.
