  1. Sherry! I love this post! How we look at things makes a huge difference. I definitely stumble along the way. Every single day. But God is faithful and I am so thankful for Him!

  2. I read this right after my thoughts went to “God how am I going to do this all?”
    I am so glad that I serve a God who is so much bigger than all of my excuses, and reasons that I can’t. Every time I think to myself that I won’t have enough time to do it all, He constantly reminds me that He holds time in His hands, and also as one of my friends says “His track record is perfect”. Thank you for this beautiful reminder!

    1. I love that – “His track record is perfect.” 😀 Thank you for sharing that. It’s pretty powerful when we realize what you said, that God is bigger than all my excuses.

  3. Awareness of our weaknesses and also strengths is pretty important. There are some areas I’m strong in but rarely focus on and lately I’ve been challenged to step up and use those strengths.

    1. That’s wonderful to be challenged, isn’t it? God doesn’t let us stay back – He challenges us to step forward. Amen. 🙂

  4. Honestly, I think that selfishness and pride exist both in puffing up and in tearing down. Either way, I am thinking of myself more than I am thinking of others. Viewing God with humility and awe, and giving him his rightful place in my life definitely leads me to consider others more than I consider myself, leading to selflessness.

  5. Oh MY LANTA! I have been struggling with this just this week. How quickly we forget – every hour we need Him! I gave up yelling at my daughter for Lent. AT ALL – zero yelling in our house and then she hit a defiant streak and I relied on my own strength – and yelled. Weeks without yelling and I got complacent instead of really resting in Him. Thank you for speaking to my heart today.

  6. I’ve been struggling with what my motivations are, and hope I am a follower of Christ for the right reasons… I AM still in awe of God, though, and hope I never lose that feeling!

    1. I hear you – I tend to do the same thing myself. Sometimes I have to actively shake myself out of it, because that way of thinking can be so pervasive. It’s like I just accept that I’m not up to par – ever. So this was a great reminder to me that if God sets a task for me, then that means He’ll give me the means to do it.
