All Him, none of me

I don’t want the credit, especially when it doesn’t belong to me! Since I started this platform, I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me to express their thanks and offer support, amongst other things. Although at times it’s hard for me to accept compliments, kudos and pats on the back, one thing I won’t do, and that’s steal God’s thunder (no pun intended).

I’m a writer, so I know firsthand what it’s like for someone to take credit for something you did, and they didn’t do. That’s why I refuse to cheat God of the glory and praise, when I know I didn’t do anything; it was all Him. Anything positive I do, it’s of God. I may be one’s source of inspiration or motivation, but it’s only because I’ve allowed God to use me.

My goal has always been to be a person who’s very genuine, loving and caring, that when people see me, they would see God (in me) and want Him for themselves. Besides, if it were not for Him, there’d be no me. Now do you see why the credit is His and none of mine? Sometimes, we go through things in life that we don’t necessarily like, but it’s not for us; it’s for Him and His glory. I don’t question why anymore, because years ago, He revealed to me the reason; you! It was all done to help YOU!

The next time you (or anyone for that matter) feel compelled to place me on a throne, remember, there’s already someone sitting there!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Writefully yours,

Deetra La’Rue
