A Look Inside

Do you look inside yourself? Really look and listen? Your actions are speaking to you. Yes, they speak to others, but more importantly, they talk to you about who you are and why you feel the way you feel.

Embarrassment tells me I’m too full of myself.

Arrogance tells me I’m deluded.

Hurt tells me to reach out and mend the gap.

Anxiety tells me I’m bearing a weight not meant for me to carry.

Failure tells me I’m on the verge of growth.

Success tells me I’m blessed beyond measure.

What is your life trying to tell you?

“Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently in the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–he will be blessed in what he does.”–James 1:24-25
