So I'm training this morning and all of the sudden I hear on TV that we need to be prepared for God to work within us, before we reach our purpose, goals, and dreams! Yes we need the vision, but guess what? We may not be positioned to carry it out if we have junk inside of us. For instance: Using a habit of Comparing Yourself to others as a measure of your goodness, worthiness or trust worthiness...
They used the example found in John 21 where Peter is asked 3 times if he loves the Lord and Peter says, "Of course I do Lord, I love you more than anyone..." Basically Peter is saying without saying "I'm better than other's" Like noone could love the Lord more than he, can. In a way he is drawing comparisons between he and the other disciples here.
I soon realized that I do that as well. I draw comparisons, and reason out why I am different based on those comparisons all the time!
Holy Schmoley...who knew?
So while I thought this "All About Me" moment might be a selfish moment, my revelation today is that it is a cleansing time for me to look at what I am all about, my motives, desires, and clean the junk out of me to truly be the best I can be, moving into a more humble spirit that is ready to move forward with a purpose!!! I love it!
Just like the 'TREE' so are 'WE' OR rather am "I"
The trees are full of beautiful foilage in summer which in fall lose all that beauty...outside beauty, that is made stronger for the next season with sap that is running through it when all we see are a bunch of branches. In Spring once again the beauty, more full and lush returns ready to shade us and comfort us and remind us that God does take care of his creation. So goes it with me. I am in that 'sap' season and am being fed to be the best I can be. These are the silent times when God gets to work on me so I can be what it is I need to be to make my dreams come true and give the glory back to Him!
Look out world...I have a dream!!!
It' just Val, Caio!
