I'm really fond of the messages Kristin Armstrong shares in Work in Progress ... one of those down-to-earth, absolutely relate-able books that beckons me time and again.
This morning, for example!
Still feeling the effects of an ugly head-cold..... discouraged by Hesitation that's defined recent thoughts: "What if I fail?"
... I let my fingers go walking for an andedote to that old "what-if" monster.
May I share an example from Ms. Armstrong's guide?
"Being good enough means letting go of expectations, and focusing on the areas in which we truly do have something to offer. God has given each of us unique and precious gifts; (and) when we use these gifts for His glory, we start to become good enough by proxy.
When we try to be and do the things that are outside our true selves, we turn into strivers. Strivers are people who endlessly struggle for perfection and end up with far less than good enough.
Good enough means being able to accept who and where we are with grace and gratitude and being content with ourselves as works in progress.
....The more we go to God and experience the steadfastness of His promises, our confidence builds. Not confidence in ourselves, but confidence in an almighty God."
What can I say, but "Amen"! Have a wonderful day!!!
