What is it about my heart that wants to put up its fists and prove I am worthy, I am right, I am...the one to listen to? My pride swells too often. It swelled so much in those days when I wanted to re-convince him of the truth of Jesus.
I thought I had all the answers...I crafted them over and over in my head. I wonder what hurdles I might have knocked down if I just expected to be a little ineffective...or a lot...and a teeny bit foolish (or a bunch)? Grace gives me such a soft place to land, and a chance to re-evaluate the value of my pride. Where I am ineffective, God is effective. Where I am foolish, God is wise.
Accepting, committing to Grace today.
