Just when I think I’m conquering several forms of pride in my life, just when I think I’m focusing on God and others more than myself, just when…
I tell myself that nothing matters except God’s call on my life and what He has to say about me. But then I let things bother me and bring me down. I got sales figures from my Blushing book today, and they went down over the past two months because stores are allowed to return their surpluses.
Then I get a sweet comment on my blog from someone I’ve never met who loves the book and can’t wait to share it with others. I get awesome comments and e-mails from people nearly every day. They always touch my heart and make me so grateful to God. And then I let numbers get me down. Why, oh why, can’t I just praise God for using me in any small way He chooses?
Why can’t I just fix my eyes on Jesus and let nothing else get to me but Him? Why do I feel like I have to produce to have worth? Why do I measure myself by someone’s standards other than God’s?
Why can’t I just enjoy the sunshine?
