Have you called something “not for you” because it was outside of your comfort zone?
Jesus is perfect, not a perfectionist.
I’m thankful that God (and others) stick with me even when I’m being an angry elf and hold me accountable when I slip back into unhealthy habits.
I highly recommend you try confession and repentance for yourself and see how God moves in your life!
The truth is, the best remedy for my control problem is not to try to control my behavior further, but to focus on what Jesus willingly did for me.
Growth rarely happens in the comfort zone, so I encourage you to take a baby step out of it today, and see what happens.
Part of the joy of being a Christian is that we do change. The problem is that I tend to resist change.
Recently, I had allowed my heart to grow hard again but God doesn’t like to let heart issues fester for long.
Hopefully, we’ll all get a little bit better at paying attention to these warning signs, loving ourselves, and, as a result, we’ll love others even better.
While we’re so focused on the external situation being remedied, God is concerned with our identities.
