It's Not For You
How many times have I seen my kids get a gift, find up a toy, have a bowl of "chucky larms" or literally receive anything, immediately followed by the phrase, "It's not for you," (or similar gesture) to their brother.
How many times do I receive a blessing and hold my arms so tightly around it with the same action?
We can hold on to things so tightly sometimes that it prevents God from doing what HE wants to do. I so badly want to be a conduit for God on earth, and I hope I'm in tune enough to the Holy Spirit to know when to hold it and when to give it away.
