I have been trying my best to walk in the way of the Lord lately. I want to live a Godly life and do what He tells me. I have been doing it my way for 36 years and it has got me into boat loads of trouble.
I am totally an "all or nothing" person and I get caught up in things and tend to have a hard time with moderation. Yesterday morning I woke up, went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror. I realized I have a sore throat and a headache-I am getting sick. I never get sick- I said that on Facebook a few days ago. Why am I sick? And just as I was done thinking those thoughts God told me I was being self righteous and arrogant-that is why.
I need to check myself and learn a little humility and walk in gratitude. Yes I have been working hard not to do the wrong things and do the right things but I need to remember how much I had to lean on God to get where I am. I need to remember that my strength comes from Him and I didn't do this all by myself.
Then a show came on yesterday at 8am "Enjoying Everyday Life" with Joyce Meyer. She was teaching people from India about God and how he sent Jesus and how He loves us no matter what and we don't have to work work work to be good enough for Him. He loves us just the way we are. I cried the entire show. It was what I needed to hear when I needed to hear it.
