Day 218 of Giving Thanks

I was reminded today while reading a post on “MOVING TIPS” how many times I have moved in my lifetime. The number is 18 – which means, I have moved, on average every 2.5 years; most of which have been in the last fifteen years. While reading the tips, I saw a tip that mentioned getting rid of stuff and thought “let go of everything weighing me down”. Then in reading His Love Extended’s blog, Sandy talked about letting go of pride – and my first thought was “I am doing pretty good here… right?” Well, that killed it right there.

Full circle as I journey from location to location and from move to move, I am comforted and grateful that He knew my here and now even before the earth was formed. Each and every step is noted and He acknowledges them. I am humbled by His light shining on my path and by my stubbornness. After reading the brief list of where pride hides – I know that there are many more prideful things for God to illuminate and share with me. I am grateful to know that these things that are note-worthy and will be life-changing if I can just let go of myself to become more of Him. Lord, I am so arrogant to believe that I can be better with my own works, I pray that You will intensely highlight where pride keeps me from Your presence and from Your blessings. I pray for wisdom and humility as You identify me and as I seek You to work in me.

And, again I pray “Lord I am ready for my dream, if I am not ready, continue to prepare me.

"The arrogance of (me) man will be brought low and the pride of (me) men humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day..." ~Isaiah 2:17
