Humility

Humility – the topic that is not very popular but I’m going for it anyway. It seems like everyone always has a different definition of what humility really is. I’m going to share my thoughts and opinions regarding what it is and why it’s important.

I think it’s just the act of seeing ourselves in a whole new light, the ability to judge our own selves to God. We are in a growing journey and relationship with our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ so which means, we are going to be wrong probably in more ways than we ever think. According to the Bible, God opposes the proud but favors the humble.

What I have learned from this past year alone, is that I don’t want pride in my heart anymore. I understand the importance of having confidence but there is a fine line between having confidence and just being filled with pride. Part of the reasons why I took a break from this is that I just needed one on one time with God. I wanted to get in the Bible more than ever before and got to know my Father in ways so deep.

I have played the victim card for much too long and that blame game got way too tiring. The constant game of “his fault” and “her fault” and “their fault” until finally I reached a point of exhaustion to God that I was tiring of that blame game and victim mentality. Nothing ever gets fixed with those. The more I talked to God and wanted His help, the more I saw myself differently. There I things I could have done differently or prayed about. I felt like a horrible person but I’m grateful for it. I didn’t have God First in many situations. I didn’t go to the Word to see what God thinks about what is right to do in a situation. On the surface, it would make perfect sense for me to be in the right in a lot of what I went through, but I don’t see it that way anymore. I’m not saying this to be hard on myself. I’m grateful that God has shown me a different perspective, and by that, I am loving people more. I’m understanding things more. My relationships are better. How I respond is better.

We all fall short of the glory of God and our hearts can be deceived no matter how good we think our intentions are.

If I ever have people disagree or people thinking I’m even more crazy with a lot of issues, I’m letting God be my defender because I rather be in right standing with Him than with the world.

It’s OK to put ourselves underneath that microscope and letting God in to work. One of my favorite quotes has always been “a different perspective changes everything” and that different perspective was from God’s way of view. I am SO grateful of my heavenly Father!!

It’s OK to be wrong.
