Say this with me: "It is not about me."
Say it again: "It is not about me."
God is so good.
I am constantly amazed at how little I understand of Him and forever thankful when He blesses my heart with the slightest insight and increased understanding of His mercy and His love.
The Lord has changed my heart tremendously in the last three years.
I am coming to realize that submission is nothing more than the ultimate self-control.
Think about it.
What do you struggle with daily? Now what is the root of that struggle?
Selfishess? Just want to do what you want to do? What are your children doing while you are doing what you want to do? What is your husband doing while you are serving your "needs"?
Lack of self-control? Loose your temper or allow your emotions to overcome you? Eat too much? Or do you skip all your meals but one? Drink too much coffee? Open your mouth when you should keep it shut? Manipulate to get your opinion heard? Sleep late in instead of sitting at the foot of the cross?
"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.." ~~II Corinthians 10:5
