We often allow the talents and abilities given by God, sharpened by us, to be used in a manner that is displeasing to Him. They help to build arrogance and pride that block His purpose and our path to destiny. When this occurs, God must act swiftly and often aggressively, leaving us to believe we are being treated unfairly or that life has dealt us a bad hand. God does not deal bad hands, but hands that are mishandled by humans who sometimes do not appreciate what has been given to them for His purpose. In this ungratefulness, we most often make bad decisions that lead to undesired consequences we cannot handle. God must break down the pride, arrogance, and ungratefulness that we build up by any means necessary because He loves us. In trials, try to think of barriers and roadblocks we are placing in our paths that He is trying to remove.
I am a 36 year old wife and mother of three children. I love all-things creative and writing thought-provoking posts. I began documenting #MyEarlyMorningThoughts about two years ago and have since received many requests to begin blogging and to continue posting about everyday life, growth, maturity, and christian concepts. Don't be shy, feel free to comment your life experiences and wisdom on any post.
