Can I be honest with you all? I would like to believe mental battles are my specialty. Every morning I go through all my thoughts and try to tackle them. “Ok, this thing didn’t feel right – I’m going to go through all the possible reasons why this happened.”
Most of the time, I stop and think ”you know this is just your ego talking. Come on we know God fights every battle.” A few minutes later, I come back to earth. Eventually, I choose to love instead of hypotheticals and realize none of the negative stuff matters.
Like me, you may have to remind yourself to rely on God more than yourself. Good intentions can lead to peace and appreciation for success. There is nothing wrong with wanting more – but we have to remember, our father comes first.
We can’t allow our ego to always be the star. Craving power can cause a spiritual addiction which leads to failure. How many times do we hear about famous people having it all only to lose everything? It’s so important not to make ourselves idols.
Let’s continue to pray to remain humble while having the grace of God accompany us. Without him, what would it mean?
