This morning I was reminded of a propensity
to blame God for 'bad stuff'
and congratulate self for 'good stuff'
I read a couple of proverbs that echoed some things I observed lately...
Pv 19:3 A man’s own folly ruins his life,
yet his heart rages against the LORD.
19:19 A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty;
if you rescue him,
you will have to do it again.
As the 'middle child' I have this innate desire to
'Rescue' people from difficulties
But as these 2 proverbs suggest
that is actually impossible
there is a need for an internal change...
they are living life with the
fundamental flaw of SELF RULE.
- NO ONE can help them...
and I am reminded that;
Self Rule creeps in...
and asserts itself
IN MY LIFE
without Me even realizing it.... :(
Open my eyes to the flawed ways of thinking
in my own life.
To run my own life
is to lose.
Reminds me of your words in Matt 16:24-26

not Rules and Regulations
I give up
