Proverbs 3:7 says, “Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn your back on evil. 8 Then you will gain renewed health and vitality.
I’m blogging a little less often these days – one to two times a week – mainly because I’m trying to clearly establish life balance. I’m going to suggest today to everyone struggling in a marriage relationship the same advice that hit me today with my own organizational struggles. Proverbs 3:7. I’m looking for renewed health and vitality in this area, and it occurred to me that I sounded the same as some of the people that contact me with their lists of things they are doing, and still not seeing changes in their lives.
I’m doing the same thing. I’ve done a bazillion organization programs. I’ve set the standards. And then I’ve leaned on my own understanding. And of course it doesn’t “work.”
I think change begins with the humble attitude of, “I don’t know what I don’t know… please show me what to do… I will do it.”
So. Today’s dare is fairly simple. Maybe not easy, but simple. Think back to the advice other people have given you about your situation and ask yourself, “Have I taken it?”
Dare you to ask God what He has to say about your situation, see what His Word has to say…or are you always blaming the other person for the problems? That’s judgment.
It’s also leaning on your own understanding. It’s also being “impressed with your own wisdom.”
Double dog dare you to “share” or comment or (extra points!!) DO something different today. If more of what you’ve been doing isn’t working, then stop doing the same thing over and over again. That’s madness. For things to change, things have to change.
Glad you are on this journey with me!
Love to you,
