Multitude Monday – If you don't humble yourself…

on August 30, 2010

holy experience

… then you will be humbled.

I got cocky.  I thought that through all the trials that have happened the past few months, we were handling it quite well.  On our own.  With no help.  In fact, I thought that we were so good, we were better than a lot of other people.

And I was humbled.  Oh was I humbled.  By my own reaction to a situation with one of the kids, by my reaction with Ja together.  By the child’s reaction.

We have not invited the Lord to be at the center of our home for a good long while now, and that is very obvious in the prideful way we’ve all been behaving.

Yesterday?  We were humbled.  I was humbled.  And frankly?  I’m glad for it.

Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built upon Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
