It’s not you, it’s me
How about we go our separate ways?
After dealing with a breakup, we tend to find ways on how we can pick up the pieces, go back to living our lives, and wished what we had just experienced never existed . Breakups can be stressful. You will find yourself questioning what went wrong; asking yourself, "what if things were done differently"; would I still be with that person? Sometimes our relationship with God can be so weak because we’re so stuck in our ways, when we think it’s God....but really it’s us.
When life comes at you hard, you start questioning and asking “what if” or instead of choosing left over right. How would things be now? ....”It’s not you, it’s me.”
Because you’re stubborn, you tend to focus on doing things your way and try to figure out your next step. You're being pushed 10 times harder into what you’re trying to overcome because you have the thought in the back of your head if God doesn’t hear me now, what can He do for me? ....The concept, ”It’s not you, it’s me.”
You find yourself getting angry, bitter and confused because you want things to be mended back together so you can just live the normal life you desire. But you blame God for your actions and not yourself....”It’s not you, it’s me.”
How often do you find yourself breaking up with the Creator who knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb? Someone who has never questioned your downfalls, always right there when everyone else was all of sudden “unavailable” during your time of need. What did it take for you to turn your back on God, because out of those many times, He could have let you drift away.
But instead, He sailed your ship safely and brought you back to shore. We give up on God when we lose our faith in Him when we don’t get our way. We “break up” and tell God, “It’s not you, it’s me.” We create that mentality because we want God to move rapidly, we don’t put in the work to show God His worth. We don’t pray like we used to, we don’t fast like we should, we barely pick up our bible, and we rarely seek Him. But we only do these things when it’s beneficial to us, because we want something to be fixed right then and now (30 second microwave fixed).
Life fixes take more than 30 seconds. We must learn and understand once we decrease self, God will increase. - “He must increase, but I must decrease."”
John 3:30 ESV
Stop allowing breakups to dictate and idolize your relationship with God. He will never depart His ways from you. We have to build a mentality of; Less of me and MORE of You, instead of; “It’s not you, it’s me.”
Daily Prayer: God, help me to understand my life is not my own and you are the writer of my story. It’s MORE of You, I need and less of me, Amen. 🙏🏽🙌🏾
