I used to think Adam and Nichalas were my best from everything I have ever produced.
It isn't that they aren't my best, it is that they are not mine.
Just like everything else in my life.
I am blessed in being whom He appointed to be a steward for whatever and whomever is in my life.
Yet, how often do I hold back the "best" of things and offer up to ABBA my seconds?
In serving Him up the "seconds", I am not fooling Him at all.
If we don't - if we don't give Him the "best" - the "best" becomes our gods.
I used to get my worth and satisfaction, my love fill if you want to call it that, from Adam and Nichalas. By placing them first in my life, I was not only placing ABBA further down the list, but also Curt. I was also placing a huge burden on Adam and Nichalas. There isn't another human (or thing) who is able to fill our God-void.
Only He can.
Sure, I still wrestle with placing security, my worth, in things of this world, but it isn't the battle it once was. I find more and more I want less and less of things - of stuff - to fill my life. I love being with Adam, Nichalas and Amber, but have now put Curt above them.
And above Curt? Is my ABBA. He has become my "bestest friend".
He is better than the "best". So blessed am I.
