FAITH MONTH: DAY 7: “But to mean it when I say that I want my life to count for His glory is to drive a stake through the heart of self – a painful and determined dying to me that must be a part of every day I live.”― Louie Giglio
We have heard the line in meetings…”Ego must be smashed…” And yet we seldom see it in action. This quote reminds me that I cannot take a bow for anything in my life if I am truly walking this spiritual path. None of it is my doing.
I am blessed by every opportunity I have to do anything. Every moment of my life is grace. Every breath is grace. Every day that dawns is grace. What a beautiful thing to sit with!
But we forget so easily how that happens. We stand up in meetings or on social media and take all kinds of credit for our lives, our recovery, any and all of it. And none of it was done BY us. It is all a gift that is given TO us.
I am a much better person when I know that and remember that. A must lighter life that way.
