It doesn’t mean you’re prideful.
Updated: Sep 16, 2019
Ever sense I felt called to ministry I’ve had the mindset of everything should be about God, and everyone else.
I wanted to do everything with the right heart & not be prideful. That sounds like a great mindset, but I’ve become miserable.
I’ve been obsessing over trying not to be self obsessed.
I have big goals for my life and I thought that in order to reach them, I needed to take myself entirely out of the equation.
It is impossible to live my life without me in it.
The opinions of others always get to me... but that’s something I’m trying to work on.
I know I’m not in this for attention. I’m going to do everything for God and others with all of my heart, but it is my heart. You see, I had been doing everything to please God and others, but my heart wasn’t in it at all.
You CAN be confident without being conceited
God says the greatest commandment is to love him with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and the second is like it, to love others as yourself.
Love God, love others, and love yourself. We always forget that God also commanded the last one••••••••••• I always struggle with loving myself because I want to be humble. There is no clear line at where loving your self becomes pride, and humility becomes self hate.
I‘ve been trying so hard to take myself out of my future goals, that I became drained of hope and was only continuing on because I felt a calling. I wasn’t in it for the right reasons, I wasn’t in it at all.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO DO ANYTHING THAT I DON‘T DO. (And that sentence doesn’t make sense, because that doesn’t make sense!!)
I was so confused... and I still partially am, but I have realized one thing,,
you should not hate yourself for loving yourself
Yes, it is important to not become prideful, and the bible says to consider others over yourself and stay humble. However it’s also important to love the person that you are, because you are stuck with you forever. Why would you ever expect others to enjoy being around you if you don’t even enjoy being around you?
don’t only treat others how you want to be treated, but also treat yourself how you wish others treated you.
Don’t let the fear of opinions keep you from Gods calling on your life/ your goals and dreams.
No, I don’t “love me” like I should, but I’m getting there.
