I teach 5/6 grade girls life group on Sundays at our church. I love it, they are amazing and I always learn when I am teaching.
One day we were taking about who is in charge of our lives and I needed to give them a visual so I hopped up on a chair and said, “This is me in charge of my life. I’m on the throne. I make all the decisions. When I look around I only look down because I am the biggest and best and I come first.”
Then I got down and said, “ This is God on the throne of my life. Him in charge, Him in the drivers seat. Me acknowledging who He is and putting him in the right place in my life. Me looking up to him continually for help and guidance in all things. Him directing my paths.”
This visual was unexpected and on a whim but it stuck with me greatly!
Each day I would wake up and ask myself- who do I want to be today? Sarah who is on the throne of her life? Or the Sarah who lets the Lord be first in command? Do I want the Holy spiritual to guide me and my day? Or do I want to be the god of me today?
I know what I want but it’s a continual practice and surrender fleshing that out.
Does this resonate with you?
May we all choose Him today in all areas of our life’s and let Him be in the chair of our lives. May Jesus guide us to do His will!
Love, Sarah ❤️
