But what’s even harder is to lose self

losing youself

I’m not talking about “losing yourself” in love. That’s easy.

I’m talking about getting rid of self-importance, putting others first, giving of yourself and not minding if no one takes note. Yeah, not standing up for your rights.

Perhaps this is the hardest. Satan’s temptation to Eve and Adam was to put themselves first: God was being a killjoy not letting them “become like Him knowing good and evil.” Wow, that’s alluring, to be like God!

Don’t degrade the human race’s father and mother though. We all do it every day.

LOL! This picture is so funny. Thanks: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Sanitaryum/posts “I wish I could lose weight as easily as I lose my keys, my pen, my cell phone, my temper and even my mind.” That’s a good laugh.

But it’s sobering to think about losing self. Help me, Jesus.

  1. Reblogged this on GOD'S POETIC CHILD!!! and commented:
    I love this. A Must Read!

  2. Everyday I try to lose my “self.” Not easy, that’s for sure. But I believe God honors my desire.

  3. LOL, that is a good picture. It is incredible how tightly we cling to “self.” Oddly enough, letting go of self feels really good, so good, I can never figure out why I try to cling to it so hard.

  4. I agree, not only with the post but with the comments so far!
