This morning I visited Mary's wonderful blog, Cheerios Do Fly!!! and read her quote of the day. A little light shone on my difficulty. You'll never guess what my stumbling block is. . . PRIDE. Isn't that a sin we all struggle with? Here is just a portion of the quote Mary posted:
"Don't give in to discouragement. If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust in your own powers. " --Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Nothing could be truer of myself.
Lord, teach me to be humble and to put my trust more fully in you. Amen.
