Trying to Move a Brick Wall
Check your motives and efforts....
Have you ever been in a situation where the harder you try the further behind you get?
It's frustrating not only because you are wasting tons of effort, but also it is not very enjoyable.
Have you ever considered that perhaps your motives for doing this may be based on the wrong things and that is why the efforts are not bringing your desired results?
My best example was trying to lose weight but never changing my diet. Sure…I would go longer at the gym, yet I continued to eat more carbs and junk.
Thank God for SCAA and my new way of life!
Now perhaps it's different for you, but I have learned to check my motives to make sure they are good and then see that my efforts match up...
Check your experience...
"We ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives." Big Book pg 85
Lord, let us check our motives to make sure they align with Your will for us and not our selfish wants, AMEN.
"…and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper." 2 Chronicles 26: 5
Have a blessed day y’all!
