Your Favorite Possession

The 42nd Week of Gratitude:  Your Favorite Possession ~ The way I come to believe and see ;  Everything I have belongs to God. What good I treasure and what good I obtain is within my heart. I’m thankful that Jesus has His claim on me. He’s mine and I’m His.

What I “have” is the stewardship over what possessions I manage.  I’m accountable for what I do, what I say and what I’m a caretaker of. And, I shouldn’t let what I have, possess me.

I know that what’s in my possession is temporal.  I’ve learned to hold things loosely.  What I manage can be taken away from me.  And I know that they could be destroyed.

Everything that I “have” is on loan.  How I received things, came from what was given to me as a gift or what I obtain through laboring and buying processes. Yes, I have to hold things loosely. Someday, I’ll have to let “them” go.

Everyday, I make choices / decisions.  I have to approach things the why I believe…through what I do in actions, words and deeds… and with this process, I have to do it throughout my lifetime.

In all, life was given to me.
I belong to God.
Yes, I’m a  steward.
I own nothing.
LORD, help me manage what I have.

May we not let what we have control over us.
May we learn to hold things loosely.
May the LORD help us manage what we have.
Amen.

Thanks for reading.
God bless you.
S. A. Blakley

P.S.
I’m thankful for Jesus, the “cross” and my family history.
