Today, I Will Trust God To . . . .

.  .  .  TO HELP ME GLORIFY YOU WITH THE GIFTS YOU’VE GIVEN ME.

Today, Heavenly Father God, help me lift up and glorify your name with all that you’ve blessed me with; You have given me talents, gifts, wisdom and understanding along with discernment-show O God how to use them affectively to draw others to you. Help me not be caught up in building up myself but edifying others so that they might know your Word, that they might come to relationship with you Father God and experience your love, grace and mercy like I have come to know you and even more so. Strengthen my desire to serve with gladness and a cheerful heart Lord God, that I might show myself diligent in drawing others to the kingdom of your light O God.

“For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.”  –  Romans  12:3-8

Recovery Tip For This Week

 Tip for this week . . . .

 

Know Your Weaknesses.

 

A lot of times we think, even believe, we’re stronger than we actually are, and no one can tell us different. Not until we actually have to prove it, or place ourselves in a vulnerable position do we finally realize it, then the embarrassment sets in. Take a serious inventory of your weaknesses and strengths because we can fool ourselves more than we believe. Our focus in recovery can be so easily distorted by over-estimating or under-estimating our strengths, that we rarely think about our weaknesses, but we need to be careful so that we don’t fall back into our behaviors and cause even more damage. Look at what you know you do best, ask God to continue to develop those skills and give you the mindset to always be aware of them. In your strengths, we ought to acknowledge them and pray that they are used when needed. Know that our weaknesses can be enhanced and sharpened to become a part of our strengths. Always, always desire that God continues to mold and shape you into the man of God He created you to be.
