Hi friends! Last time we were talking about success and creating results. The journey to creating results can seem so smooth until a pit fall comes your way. A pit fall is something that must change in you first in order to move forward and create the life you truly desire. Lets take a look and see which one of these pit falls best describes you and how you will overcome it.
The first pit fall is false pride and ego. False pride and ego is over-estimating and compensating your abilities. When you size up your competition to match their credentials, when you obsess to be better than everyone else and strive to achieve results, when the results and success that you have aren’t good enough, when you think you are already better than everyone else and don’t need any more skills and training because you already know it; these are all classic signs of false pride and ego. Just remember one thing, pride always comes before a fall.
Just recently, I really stepped out in faith. I recently felt it laid on my heart to serve a particular community. One thing our family our family has wanted to do more of this year is to give back more of our time and our gifts to the local community. I filled out an application first. Normally I would have submitted it promptly, but instead something told me to sit back and pray on it for a couple of weeks. My flesh did not like this idea because I see it and want to dive in, but I chose to submit my heart to God and prayed for strategic wisdom. God laid it on my heart to pray for a heart change so I did. The funny thing is the original area I thought we should serve in has completely transformed and changed into something completely different. My heart was so tender as I became open to receiving His direction. I am so glad I did, otherwise I would completely be missing the opportunity and the ability for God to use me and our family in building and impacting lives around us as He saw fit. It is much more than just about me, it is about what He purposes us to do!
