94. that God shows me only one step of my path at a time... I am afraid if I could see the whole plan I would chicken-out.


95. that I don't need to know anything about the path ahead of me because I know the One who leads me down the path, and I know I can completely trust Him.


96. that there actually is always something to be thankful for... if I'm willing to look for it... even if all I can think of is "thank you God that it is not always like this"! (so far I have always come up with something, regardless of how dark my day may have been.)

When confronted by your shortcomings  

Posted by Sarah Forbes in

When confronted by your shortcomings there are two "normal" responses
1) oppositional
2) anxious

...a proper response would be to try to find balance in your life
 ...to seek to become more Christ-centered
...to understand your position in Him

...basically to gain perspective of how God sees you so you can view the situation from a better vantage point than where you are.
