freedomfrom fear

One thing I have learned from being a part of Gods Family is that people can help people. If You have a particular problem there is a high chance that someone has gone through it before. There is nothing new under the sun. God Himself came to earth to share in our humanity. He understands our frailties and failures. There are all kinds of psychological, relational, and spiritual problems. The first step in overcoming a problem is to identify and understand it.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Obviously, you see your reflection. Every day, we look into the mirror to examine ourselves, look for faults we need to fix, and ensure we look presentable. However, do you know that we also need to look into the life mirror to help us examine ourselves?

"For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you."
Romans 12:3

I don’t know about you, but I am a pretty good liar when it comes to self-evaluation. It’s kind of like looking in the mirror; I see the 18-year-old body I used to have and not the old body I now have.

Doing a self-evaluation is much the same way. Many times we only see the good we are or the good we do. We never look at the bad side of ourselves. For the most part, I think we are afraid to be honest with ourselves because of what we might find. The hard part is admitting to something wrong in your life and then having to deal with it. But how can you and I work on becoming a better Christian if we never work on the bad stuff? Most of us will say "I'm doing fine" and go our merry way. But Honestly, most of us are not fine. We need to take the light of truth and shine it in the dark places of our lives.
