Although deep inside I know nothing is too hard for the Lord to do. It can be hard to have and show the faith in that. But I must do exactly that.
Today I am grateful for the love of my parents and my siblings.
I am reading a book called The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. He talks about what he calls the Upper Limit Problem. And one of the symptoms of it that our unconscious uses to keep us from living in our Zone of Genius is deflecting. As I think about it, I realize how much I have used deflecting in my life to keep from acknowledging when I’ve done well and experience the happiness from it. Over the past few years, I’ve learned to accept and acknowledge compliments, but it’s still hard for me to do so. I want to keep from out-shining others. I hope that as I notice this and acknowledge it, it will help me to do even better at accepting compliments and acknowledging the good I’ve done.
