Posts Tagged ‘finding less me’

Another thing God is certainly always saying is, trust me. He always has your best in mind. Following Him will never result in anything less than ultimate good. Peace is the prize. Sure there will be challenges in this life, the people around you will make decisions that hurt, you will make choices that are not good for you or others but He is not only capable of redeeming them, it is what He wants to do if we’ll let Him. This isn’t to be thought of as always getting what we want. It’s the promise He gives that we’ll forever get what we need.

The best place to start when seeking less self is trust. A close examination of the things in our life that cause the most difficulty will usually reveal an area that we don’t really trust God in and when we don’t trust Him we feel it necessary to meet that need ourselves. For example, if we don’t trust that God’s love for us is enough we resort to all kinds of ways to either attain love from others, manipulate those around us or convince ourselves and others that we don’t need love.
