I’m an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking. (Psalm 139:2 The Message)
” . . . there’s a big difference between humility and discounting ourselves.” (Melodie Beattie)
Many times in my life I have put myself down, discredited my abilities and been just plain mean to myself. How about you? Do you tell yourself less than complimentary things? Are you more likely to list what’s “wrong” with you rather than your strengths and accomplishments?
Today’s list challenged me to look at myself through a more realistic lens. Things I am good at!
After you read my list, I challenge you to get honest with yourself before our gracious Maker and list all things good about YOU!
I am good at . . .
