Simply Sheffer: πŸ“šCan’t put this book down! (Me & My Big Mouth by Joyce Meyer)

From Simply Sheffer  -  πŸ“šCan't put this book down! (Me & My Big Mouth by Joyce Meyer).

Although I grew up Christian, I spent many years away from faith. I got myself offended and angry at who I wrongfully perceived as God. My (stellar) ability to over-inflate my own intelligence helped validate all my hurt-driven superiority. (🀦🏼‍♀️ ) Over and over, I nurtured a judgmental, arrogant, and cynical outlook on 'christians'. (After all, a much easier task than humbling myself. *gasp*)
Today, I have met grace and see how poorly I misguided my self. I did much damage to my mind and let me tell you.... old habits die hard. πŸ˜‘ If I am less than vigilant in my pursuit of His grace, my old ways slip back on like a well-worn sweater. πŸ˜’πŸ€·πŸΌ‍♀️ Thankfully, He is faithful to transform our lives by the renewing of our MIND. πŸ‘πŸΌ

What an incredible gift it is to learn from other Godly minds. Our mouths are powerful tools. As I step out into unknown waters this year, I am determined to speak His truth - raw and real - when and how He leads me to speak it.  Because truth is more powerful than fact.
