We spend a great deal of energy trying to take care of ourselves and obtain what we want and need. Believe it or not, this is very stressful. Why? Because God has not designed us to be selfish and focused on ourselves. He wants to take care of us while we focus on being a blessing to other people.

John Bunyan said, “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” How much time do you put into thinking about what you can do for someone else? We might say, “The more the merrier.” In other words, the less you focus on yourself and the more you focus on others, the happier you will be.
Obsession with self is a breeding ground for stress, pressure, and anxiety. But blessing someone else and worrying about yourself at the same time is nearly impossible. God’s Word is full of instructions about how we should treat others.
JOYCE MEYER DEVOTIONAL
It is time we start taking these directives seriously, realizing that if Jesus mentions our treatment of others so often, He must want us to pay attention to it.
The reason He emphasizes the way we relate to other people is that He wants us to enjoy the life He has provided for us, and He knows we cannot ever do so if we are self-focused.
Romans 8:28 (ESV) says that we …know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
God can take even the hurts and wounds we endure and use them for good in our lives. They won’t last forever, and He will use them to strengthen us and to bless and help others.
Tell God what you need and want and then leave it in His hands as you spend your time blessing others.
Prayer Starter: Father, help me be less self-focused and more focused on being a blessing to others. Thank You for helping me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
OUR LORD JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN!!!

DEAR GOD, I COME TO YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS. I ADMIT THAT I AM NOT RIGHT WITH YOU, AND I WANT TO BE RIGHT WITH YOU. I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE ME OF ALL MY SINS. THE BIBLE SAYS IF I CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH THAT “JESUS IS LORD,” AND BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, I WILL BE SAVED (ROM. 10:9). I BELIEVE WITH MY HEART AND I CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH THAT JESUS IS THE LORD AND SAVIOR OF MY LIFE. THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME!
IN JESUS’ NAME I PRAY. AMEN.
