I am a perfectionist and anything worth doing is worth doing with excellence. Good is just not good enough. And I would expect others to have my same work ethic and I just couldn’t understand why they didn’t. To be honest, I had been establishing my worth on what I accomplished. Based on my schedule a few months ago (and the last 10 years) my worth was off the charts! Not really.
God is teaching me that my worth is not based on what I do but who I am. When I take on tasks that He hasn’t assigned to me, well, I’m just miserable. I’m pretty hardheaded and it has taken a long time for Him to get through to me. But His grace proves true everyday and for that I am thankful.
“But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6 ESV
