I’m so selfish.
I am SO selfish.
I will not boast in anything; no gifts, no power, no wisdom
but I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
My flesh and spirit are in constant battle. I don’t want to live this way. I want to live completely sold out. I desire with everything in me to be selfless. Is that even possible? Jesus was selfless.
I spend too much time concerned with myself. Everything fades away, but Jesus is unconditional.
An unhealthy tree has to cut down to a small trunk in order to grow strong and bare prosperous fruit.
That is a prefect picture of my where I am right now. He is chizzling away all of the ugly and dead fruit so that I can grow according to His perfect will for me.
It hurts, but it has to happen.
God, I pray that you would strip my pride from me. I beg you. Make me more like Jesus.
