YOU ARE YOUR OWN BULLY.

These are words that I told my son earlier in the day; words that I think I needed to hear myself.

My strong-willed nature, the selfish desires of my heart…I’ve gotten in my own way, I’ve been my own bully. In so many ways, I’ve been my own worst enemy.

And for what?

That’s really the question…
Because I’ve been impatient? Untrusting?

Help me accept help. Open my heart. Give me discernment to make good decisions.

And, please, help me get out of my own way for progress and growth.
