Far too often when I feel that I am making progress my own propensity for old patterns and choices arises.
Not sure you know what I mean?
Have you had a Snickers instead of salad when you were hoping to eat more healthy?
Were you praying for patience and cursing out other drivers?
Were you still smarting from some ill-timed words when you assumed someone “gave you a look”? Only to find out they meant nothing by it!
Most of us are unwilling to be accountable. Too often we highlight the wrongs of others and dismiss or justify our own.
God humbles us by exposing our dents, revealing our rust, and adding to our maintenance list:
“Don’t be jealous or proud, but be humble and consider others more important than yourselves. 4 Care about them as much as you care about yourselves.” 1
It’s then that we find ourselves looking at one another with more compassion.
Mysilentscream: I hope that you find hope that there’s hope for the wrecks out there, like me!
