I want to share another poem with you guys. This is a reminder that sometimes we just need to get out of the way and quit trying to make life all about us!  

Just like when scientists thought the earth was at the center of our solar system, we put ourselves as the focus of everything.  We want what we want when we want it and how we want it.  So in a way, at least sometimes, we pretend the “earth” is at the center of it all.

“for through him (Jesus) God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:16-17‬

The Center
Man is self-centered—fallen; kind he’s not.

His ways are often selfish, prideful ways.

He is still clinging to his godless thought,

And he will hold on to the end of days.

He thought earth was the center of it all;

He thought too that all was around himself,

But found at center, there a flaming ball—

A brilliant lamp on a celestial shelf.

Man also views his life the center slew;

He cares too much what others think of him,

And often fails to care to go into

The presence of the single-son called Him.

Don’t be the selfish one; be like the son.

Life doesn’t need a center; it has one.
