This really hit home with me today. I think I just realized that my frustration at times when others in my house “take for granted” the things that are important to me, cause great stress or just the day to day things that I do, isn’t about them, it’s about my signifinace. My keeping my house, raising my children, keeping up with it all and then it goes to choas, my significance in my eyes becomes insignificant and then instead of relying on Jesus to fill me, I try to do it all myself…which leads to a vicious cycle…

I so relate to this, Dee – I could have written your words myself. So thankful He loves us enough to gently reveal our behaviors that He wants to correct. Sometimes painful, always rewarding.

I love that you said “gentle” and “painful”, Merry. His voice is always gentle, never shaming, but walking through the process of being changed can be painful. How beautiful that we are never left alone and always carried close by our Shepherd!
