Less of Me

Sometimes all it takes is one good blog post to get me thinking. Other times, it takes another.
And another. Sometimes it takes a 2nd writer chiming in. Then there are those times, I'm so dense it comes from unexpected places.

My life was like an old routine.
 Everyday the same d@mn thing. 
I couldn't even tell I was alive.

My life is not my story, its helping others live theirs well. Sometimes it means I'll be volunteered for things I don't want to do. I'll get stuck doing the thankless dirty work.

I started the day not knowing how I would make this into a cleverly worded blog. How I'd wade through the jumble in my head.




In all of this, I keep coming back to the same thought: He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30. Funny, looking at it in different translations doesn't change anything.

More of him.
Less of me.

Now to figure out how that looks in real life.


  1. I think we all think about this at times and then we forget about it. Congratulations to you for actually wanting to do something about it. I wish you the best of luck. You can do this!

  2. Amen. This is a daily struggle for me as well.

    Glad my writing connected with you. =) Thanks.
