All about Him

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can live on little and give much.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can adopt many and love more.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can care less about pleasing others and care much about pleasing Him.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can love without expecting to be loved back.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can open my home and my heart regardless of our differences.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can let go of my plans- knowing His are always better.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I care less about how my hair looks and care lots about how my heart looks.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can have peace during the unknowns- trusting He does know.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I worry less about the risk and more about just surrendering.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I allow myself to be vulnerable, knowing my experiences can help someone else.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can be content in my circumstances knowing He allowed them to be.

When it's all about Him and not about me- I can be assured success- regardless of the outcome.

He must become greater; I must become less. John 3:30

TERRIFIC! I have to share this one! Will give you all the kudos, of course. :) We are in the paper chase for an adoption in Sierra Leone. The new adoption law has just been passed and we will be charting the independent adoption waters for the first time....and likely bringing home a sibling group of four...making our total seven. You and other blogs like yours have been such an encouragement in our journey! Thank you, Thank you!

When it's all about Him your life is a blessing and an encouragement to others to do the same. Thank you Amy for letting Him use you to bless and inspire me.

I love being blessed by reading your blog. You have a beautiful way of sharing what my heart is screaming. I keep getting pegged as "unjoyful". I am so thankful that you can so beautifully share what I so sloppily try to convey. I am moved and challenged by your blog daily. I keep going back to old post, as I just found your blog not long ago. Thank you.
