Enough To Need
This is what my E.G.O. needed to hear today; a confirmation to to be vigilant, to move along with Growth/Change and keep my thoughts of G.O.D positive and directed to the forefront. It’s all about Love… of self and others. I want to impact the lives of those around me for the better. Revelations keep coming. Right now they seem to be carrying quite a “jolt” as they try to settle in and can be a bit upsetting. I’ve been consciously breathing and trying to keep my mind from taking control and distorting the facts. I need to remember not to react adversely while sorting this all out. If I begin to think I finally have Life under my control I’d make poor choices (again), act out in a passive-aggressive manner (again) and just generally upset the old apple cart (again). Then I am nothing more than a selfish, EGOtistical waste of my time and energy because I know better now. There are no excuses. The bottom line is I wouldn’t stop these Processes even if I could. They’re moving me closer to my destiny.
ENOUGH TO NEED
Never allow me to think that I have
Knowledge enough to need no teaching,
Wisdom enough to need no corrections,
Talents enough to need no grace,
Goodness enough to need no progress,
Humility enough to need no repentance,
Devotion enough to need no improvement,
Strength sufficient with Thy Spirit lest, standing still,
I fall back forevermore.
