￼￼ When asked to do something I immediately say “I can do it” and take on the challenge. This has got me in many stressful situations. As a teenager I would take things to my mom after I had made a mess of them for her to tell me how to fix it. Her response was always the same. “Karen, why didn’t you ask me if you didn’t know how to do it?” That question always bugged me, why would I ask her when I thought I knew how to do it. That was only the beginning of my pride and self righteous thinking.
God reminds us that his GRACE is all we need. That when we pour ourselves out then their is room for Him. Philippians 4:13 says, ” I can do all things through Him that strengthens and empowers me.” I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency not my own.
Praise God for his love and patience and giving me a mom that taught me to take things to God first.
