This one speaks to me. A flaw of mine is that I like to please people. That does not seem to be a bad thing but when it comes at the cost of doing what God wants me to do or calls me to do, then it is. When I do that, (people please) it can divide my loyalties like the book spoke about today. I am positive I am not the only one in these shoes, but I have made a commitment in recent days to do what God calls me to do and trust Him for the results because ultimately that is the issue; do I trust God or do I trust man. I choose to trust God.
Love the quote in the book that says we serve a God that is not interested in sharing His throne. Over the next few weeks I plan on doing a lot of 'spring cleaning of the soul' to help get rid of the things that 'choke out the soul'.
