Frustrated and feeling defeated today.
I missed an important meeting last week – one of the classes in a course that I’m taking for certification in Spiritual Direction (SD). As I work to catch up on the material, my mind wanders…
I’m not good enough to be a SD. God isn’t calling me to serve in this way. The reading will be too difficult. I won’t be able to handle the coursework. Who do I think I am to even consider that the Holy Spirit would want to use me in this way.
Dangerous thoughts. | Focus on truth.
- These are presumptuous. | I do not know the mind of God.
- These thoughts stem from vanity. | It’s not about me.
- These are thoughts of desolation. | Satan does not want me to grow in holiness much less to lead others to know Jesus through the work of SD.
- Past hurts are muddying the waters. | I must renounce them in the Name of Jesus and focus on the next holy thing.
As Cher would say, “Snap out of it!”
Pray for me as I pray for you.
