Seeing Truth!

Seeing Truth!

What a BEAUTIFUL Spring day God has given us!
I’ve been praying God will continue to give me clarity with the most important aspects He has taught me, on my journey to joy. I want to share those things.
I’ve learned so much about myself and my behavior over the course of my healing. I’ve come to an understanding of how self-centered we human beings really are. Myself especially! We do not want to admit that! I certainly don’t! But TRUTH is, we are!! “Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist there is disorder…..” James 3:16. Our nature is to naturally be self-centered but praise God, when we see this, confess and ask God to remove it from us, our hearts begin to CHANGE! God is so amazing at changing us when we humbly ask Him too! He is ever FAITHFUL! But when we make excuses for ourselves and our prideful actions we don’t move forward! Our selfishness can destroy our relationship with other people and keep us from being close to God. Jesus has worked miraculously in my life once I’ve been deeply honest about my self-centered flesh nature. We usually don’t recognize it.
We can be very giving of our time and resources BUT if our reason for doing so is to gain the “approval of others” our motives are skewed. If wanting “people to like us” is the purpose in our niceness, it looses it’s value. It’s ALWAYS IMPORTANT to do good things for others but we must continually ask God to review our heart behind it. We need to ask God to reveal any selfish motives we might be engaging in. God wants us to have Servants Hearts because He knows THAT is what brings Him glory and gives us peace! Not the never ending “people pleasing” we can all be tormented by.. NEWS FLASH! Some people won’t like us no matter what we do or how hard we “try”!.. Trying, BTW, Is a futile activity. We are hopeless, helpless, messes “trying” to do things on our own! ONLY GOD gives us LASTING hope and freedom!! HE DOES IT, NOT US! Again, we are simply called to action and obedience! God tells us in Jeremiah 17:14, “Heal me, Lord and I will he healed!! Save me Lord and I will be saved! For you are my praise!”
Ask God, on your knees, to show you where selfishness shows up in your life and to change you!
Blessings my friends!
