Unhealthy Pride

on February 26, 2013

“Resist pride the way God resists the proud”~ plm 

I once had a huge pride issue, mainly because I was multi talented and didn’t know how to handle it. Years ago I was really struggling with this aspect of my life. In prayer the Lord gave me that phrase and it set me free!! 🙂

    Powerful sentiment! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I relate to being talented. I have always been one to excell at many things…anything i set myself to really..especially anything ina the creative realm…pride is easy to fall into…and we are intimidating to boot…not intentionally just because we can be overwhelming…it makes me think of a time when i was desperate for help…I was just so in the weeds with everythigoing on but no one wanted to help..they all thought I had it covered..in crying on a friends shoulder she reminded me that I presented myself as so capbale that no one thought they could help…much has been learned…

      It’s a life of living and learning! I am glad your friend was there for you! If I feel myself being tempted I go back to that phrase it always pulls me back, God gives grace to the humble. When I recognize God’s greatness and am reminded that He gave me the gifts to be used for Him and others it’s all about Him. I am just a vessel 🙂
