It's not about me

Sometimes girls, honestly, I want people to notice me, not God in me. Sometimes, I want them to think about what a nice Christian girl I am, not about God. That looks so bad in black and white. Please tell me I'm not the only one!
Anyway, recently, when I was doing my quiet time, I was reminded in a roundabout way how much it's not about me. I was reading from John 12:25-33 when I came to this; "and I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself." Immediately I got a picture of all people coming and kneeling before Jesus on the cross.

It was kind of like these lovely silhouette pictures we see sometimes but with all types of people kneeling. The picture reminds me vividly how much it's not about me. The TobyMac song, Beyond Me, also reminds me of that  (Because it has the same theme). 
What I thought was, people don't stare at the person who points to the reason they're all kneeling. And I don't think that's really what we want, when it's put into perspective. Our human nature wants people to look at us, but when we see Jesus again, we realize how much how much more He's worth looking at. And then, in the end, I want people to look at him. To see him in me.
Isn't He wonderful?
