Becoming Humble: Mug-spiration Monday
Monday, March 7, 2016
Within the last week, I've been learning a lot about blogging. I really thought I knew more than I did, which has been a tough, humbling experience. I'm glad that I am learning, but sometimes it's much easier to bury my head in the sand and just pretend I am smarter and more skilled than I am.
I'm not gonna lie, I have a lot of anxiety about all that's left to learn. I am entering this Monday with some discouragement and frustration about whether or not I've got what it takes. But I am also entering this Monday with a greater knowledge that I do have what it takes, and I have a wonderful platform to encourage people. I don't have to know everything or be the best blogger in the world in order to make a difference in people's lives.
The same is true for you. Whatever your calling is, and wherever you find yourself right now, you can use that platform to make a difference. Humble yourself, and know that God can use you for His glory despite any limitation you may be facing. God doesn't expect you to be perfect. God doesn't expect you to be the very best in your field or to know how to do everything. What He does expect is that you humble yourself before Him, knowing that He can accomplish great things through you, because of His own power.
So this Monday, take today to be humbled. Step back and realize that great things can happen through you and your life, but not because of anything you can do. God is the Author of all good things. So instead of feeling discouraged, frustrated, or saddened, let's instead give God the power. Let us give up our desire to be perfect, to be right, and to know everything. Let us rely on Him to do awesome things in and through us.
