Often during life I have found that I am really good at putting Jesus first when things are going great. But, what I have realized is I am not good at keeping Jesus first when things in my life become difficult. It is during those hard times that I should trust in God more, but instead I find myself putting God towards the bottom of everyday things. How I have responded isn’t what I am supposed to do. I am supposed to put God as number one. Nothing should ever become more important than Him. To put something above God says that I care more about an object or person, then the one who created me, the one who created life. “Putting Jesus first; despite my circumstances” is something that I have been trying to practice daily in my personal life. I am required as a believer to live a life that represents that of Jesus Christ. How can I though, if I don’t keep Him as my number one? I have been learning and realizing daily that I am supposed to be engaging in a relationship with Christ by telling Him about my life. I am supposed to be sharing the inmost private details of things that are going on. To truly put Christ as number one and to honestly keep Him there, I have to engage in relationship with Him, let Him guide me daily and truly follow Him. God says, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” God has allowed everything to happen in my life for a reason. No matter what circumstances are going on in my life, I have to keep God as number one.
