You know what the biggest hindrance to my faith life is?
I am a horribly selfish person.
I like to think of myself as pretty selfless. I make dinner for my husband and try to serve my friends without them asking.
When it comes to God, it's all about me. I say I want to get close to God but I don't discipline myself to have daily devotional time. I'm terrified of what he might ask me to give up. I value what people think of me instead of how God views me. I'm scared of being persecuted even a little bit if I stand out for my faith. What if I lose friends?
When it comes down to it, my faith isn't as strong as it could be because I still claim my life. I think it's mine, and I want to have fun here on Earth while I can.
I sure can talk the talk, but walking is a little more difficult.
I know I need to truly let go of my life and let God be in control. I'm just not sure how to do it.
