What a Relief!

"When we see the grand story of God's mission to redeem, restore and heal humanity, it's a massive paradigm shift. We realize that life is not about us or what we want to do - and that's a relief because I'm already sick of myself. Life is about God and His glory and what he is doing. The more we get caught up in that reality, the more we are free to be what God is calling us to be.  The question 'What should I do?' becomes 'What is God doing?' When we view Scripture with an eye toward what God has done, is doing, and will do,all questions of 'What should I do now?' get answered."
