I believe we all have something that keeps us humble and relying on God. For me, it is my weight! I have struggled my whole life with this issue and I just can't seem to gain victory. So many things have been easy to turn over and let God's will be done, but this one is SO HARD for me! What, if anything, is it for you?

You know what? Me too! OMGosh! You sound exactly like me!!! I have lost weight several times, and I feel this little "I'm all that!" attitude sneak out the thinner I get. I don't know why. Maybe that's why I don't just lose it and be done with it. I think my weight is what keeps me humble even though sometimes it really hinders me in my confidence, and being in pastoral ministry... that was a huge stumbling block at times. I'd love to chat with you about this some more, PM me.

Mine is my husband! He has made some choices that have really put a strain on our relationship and it is so hard for me to just turn things over to God! I have to add this though about yours. We had a little object lesson the other day at church and the woman teaching the class gave us all mirrors and was like look at yourselves....of course it was all women and I am sure you can guess we were all like uh yea great just what we want to see......well then the teacher said why are you not embracing yourself? are we not important anymore because we are older? and then went on to ask is there ever a time when we are no longer God's child and when God no longer loves us? *Of course she did a much better job of teaching the lesson than of me explaining it, but in the end it was just about how God loves us no matter what we look like and what we do, even when we do not love ourselves :)
