Short, sweet, to the point.....and ouch!

This could definitely be the shortest blog post ever for me....heck, maybe for anyone. I'm in the silence of my room simply thinking and listening to God today and.......

Here's what we concluded together at this very moment of time:

I need a big dose of humility.

Yep. Humility in a large dose please.

I'm praying for us all girls.

"Thank you Jesus for the love, grace, mercy and do-overs you give us."

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. - Proverbs 11:2

It's ok. We can be honest here. What do you need a big dose of?

Love you all~

Humility. Now there are months worth of memory verses in that to write on our hearts!

beckyjomama said...

Humility is a tough one ... almost like patience, ya know you need it but you never want to pray for it cause that would mean it might get tested!!!!!

Patty said...

I need a big dose of a fresh start. That is the place I am in right now. God is up to something and getting ready to move again. I know we need a completed work.
I could talk for a long time about humble places, or as Beth says, humblings. May we all be humble people before Christ.
Love you!

Mary Lou said...

I too need a big dose of faith.

ocean mommy said...

Courage. I just need me a heaping dose of Godly Courage.

hugs girl,

Shelly said...

Oh honey, I can always take that one as a daily source. Mine expresses itself in both false humility and pride; bless my messed up self without Jesus.

I would say I presently need a big dose of ?? His Spirit for guiding my paths, speech, and emotions

Linda said...

Humility and I think I am about to get it. Ugh!! We can choose to sin but we don't get to choose the consequences(DR. A.Rogers) I just hope the Father doesn't give me what I deserve. :) (Mercy please)

Sheryl said...

I need a big dose of godly PASSION!

Mandi said...

I need a BIG dose of patience!Patience for my husband and son...and patience for God's timing.

Fran said...

I'm so praying for us sweet girls.
We all need a dose of HIM and our needs change all the time or they can stay the same. Praying for you daily. May we truly be filled with Spirit.

I just about fell off my chair when I read this. I got the same message LOUD and strong last Thursday (Maundy Thursday). Have really been soaking it in ever since. Oh my!

Deflating my "puffed up" attitude,

HisTreasuredPossession said...

so good Fran! Yes, order up a big "humility-shake" for me. It creeps in so subtly. Oh that I would be laid out before Him in every way.

So glad to know we are all there!

Sweet thoughts spending time with Him and He asks, "What do you want?" He is our Source of Life. Right now I could use a big dose of endurance and strength. I'm just exhausted. And miles to go before I sleep. . .Saying prayers for each of you, Annette

Lindsee Lou said...

I could use a big dose of belief. Or just trust for that matter. Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, JUST to take HIM at HIS WORD...

Mary said...

Fran -- I wake up each morning in need of humility. I constantly remind myself of this verse:
Humble yourself before the Lord and He will lift you up.

I want Jesus to lift me up!

So, I need me some humility -- and I need passion for Christ. I want to LOVE Jesus with everything that I have! and everything that I am.

I hope you have a wonderful time at your niece's birthday party! =)

A Stone Gatherer said...

Yep that's a kicker! I've been working on this very issue for a while now! I'm a hard nut to crack, but God's got a great nut cracker!

OK, so I just happened to stumble accross your blog and it was a blessing to me! Pretty cool, since that is one of the two things you have desired to accompish through your blog. I happened to feel God calling me to blog a few days ago on sitting and listening too, and God has been working humility in my own life. I am thinking my blog entries are waayyy to long, so appreciated the brevity of your blog. Having our own blog is new to us and we just started within the last few months. I just hope I can encourage others too. I appreciate your humility, honesty, and authenticity. Thanks! Blessings to you and your family!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
