Morning loves. The last few days have been trying. I'll be the first to admit how hard it is to be selfless in a day and age when many folks do not value each other in love and unity. It seems we have a hard time collaborating, communicating, and compromising. I recognize that there are times when i fail at doing these things because I become selfish. I want to look out for myself, protect my "own" feelings, and neglect the vulnerability required to maintain healthy relationships. I admit, I fail.
As much as I've been learning about the principles of love/giving, I'm learning just as much about my selfish nature. It's hard to speak with integrity that I will follow God and be obedient when I constantly retreat to selfish behavior...smh. But everyday, he allows me to witness His forgiving nature and He keeps showing me ME up against scriptures that correct "me". Geeeeeesh! If that ain't love!
This walk is hard stuff man. But the reward is knowing HE IS IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL. And He is sending me through for PURPOSE. So, today is another day "I repent and submit"... (If my submission was a form of baptism, that water would be sick of me!!! Like, "again Trice????" 😒) #growingpains #butgrowing #loverequires
