I use the term “story” loosely today as I talk about an experience I had on the day of recording. It circles around happiness and joy, circumstances, and faith. I hope you listen in and enjoy my little bit of a soap box. 🙂
Have you ever said something that you immediately regretted? Over 20 years ago I said something to my sister that I have felt shame around this whole time. In this episode, I walk you through an exercise I went through to help me find some compassion toward myself about this particular story from my life.
You see that woman second from the left?
Everything I do is for her. She is my reason.
You thought I was going to say that these people are my why.
They are too, but I’ve realized that it has to be for me first.
But salvation is an individual matter. Even if I wanted, I can’t do the work to get them into heaven. They have to do that on their own. And I have to do mine on my own.
Anything I do, I do it to grow her, to help her become the next best version of herself, to do the work the Lord intends for her.
And that’s what I want for you, too.
When you grow yourself, you grow everyone around you. So selfish? Maybe not.
