Recently I have had to realize that shame is God’s way of humbling our hearts. We bring shame upon ourselves. It becomes apparent that in life it becomes hurt that can keep us from our goals of being closer to God.
As I grow in my life toward the woman God wants me to be, I have realized that my mistakes become shame. I read a note card that gave good life advice. it said do not go to bed angry, show up and stay late and think before you speak! Really good advise. We sometimes need to remind ourselves that sometimes what we start is not going to turn out just like we expected. However it might turn out better!
I have set some huge goals this year for my life. I look to the small victories that God will send me as I work toward these goals. However my goals mean nothing if they do not grow me toward God. Recently I have been humbled by new people who God has placed in my life. He sets our feet toward new directions! He asures me that I will be doing his work. It might be a co-worker, A family member, or a stranger that is placed in my life for his glory. I have learned to be thankful for all.
Being humble is when you realize what you have to say is not necessary! You become quiet and more willing to let others speak. Being humbled by what happens to me instead of torn down by circumstances. Learning to let go of strife and being ok with a new road. These are the things of growth!
