Supposed To Be?

What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.

Quote Reflection

Do you struggle with how it’s “supposed to be?”

I used to be a big “supposed to be-er.”

Once I began using Jesus’ teachings as my field manual, I quit worrying about what I was “supposed to be” and became who He wanted me to be.

In essence, I changed from being a person who was worried about pleasing the world to a person who tries to please God through how I live.

Most days, I fall short, but God doesn’t seem to mind as He keeps loving me from one failure to the next.

1 Timothy 6:6, “Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment”  (ESV)
