Ladies, this weekend I had to try on a pair of jeans to make sure they still fit. Have y’all tried on a pair jeans lately? ? Anywho – That’s not what I wanted to chat about. Lol
I wanted to talk about examining your heart. I’ve been on this journey examining my heart for the past few months and asking God to reveal things to me that I can work on. Once I become aware of something, I take time to examine the issue, determine the root cause and pray about it so I can try to exhibit more God qualities.
Story time: I casually brought this topic up last week in a post, but I want to elaborate a little further. I’ve noticed occasionally I like to be right when I’m talking. For example, when I have a conversation with someone and they say something wrong – I have to immediately correct them like I’m the conversation police. ? #thatissoannoying
First of all – why do I feel the need to correct them and secondly, when I correct them what do it prove? It proves absolutely nothing. I had to come to grips with a very harsh reality for myself – its an ego problem. #OUCH
How do you address any problem?
You go back to the source – “the Bible”. God designed it so that it really has an answer for EVERYTHANG! So, in addition to reading the Bible about scriptures about my heart, I am also practicing the shut up spirit. Sometimes, I have to caution myself to be quiet until I can speak things that are edifying to others. Y’all, it isn’t easy all the time, but I know with practice it will be second nature.
Question of the Day: What is something that you are working on to better yourself?
Scripture: Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
