More God, less me

One of my writing friends asked me to pray that God would become more and she less. I thought, “She’s not the only one that needs to ask for that, so do I.”

I’ve been praying for both of us to shrink and let God grow.Some things I have discovered:
It’s painful.
I don’t like getting smaller.
I don’t like having to say I’m wrong.
I don’t like having the light shift from me to Him.

That’s the negative.

The postive:
I’m learning I am not alone.
I’m happier when I don’t have to be in control

I give more attention to others than before and it feels GOOD!

  1. Thanks for the catch, Patti! I've been trying to revamp my blog look and my computer is acting cranky. That's my excuse for not catching that!

    LOL–you want to put your word in too? Isn't it hard to be still?

  2. Oh, I LOVE that Wilde quote (is business supposed to be spelled like that) and I LOVE your heart.

    You have been an answer to a prayer on a personal issue about getting “my word in.”

    You have a great blog, dear one.
