There are a few things in my life that I have to check to see where my heart is. Like I talk about in our seminars, if our heart is not right with God in our personal life it will come out as we serve. It takes a lot of energy to keep our masks on and when a situation arises that our adrenalin gets going, we will often respond poorly in either dealing with the situation or with those around us. Often times it comes out in frustration, defensiveness, and anger.
One thing that I check is checking to see if my life is a reflection of the Fruit of the Spirit. Since this is direct evidence to my relationship with God, am I exhibiting love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control to those around me and in the various situations that I find myself in. If not, what am I allowing to control my life instead of my relationship with Christ?
I am on the road doing seminars, trainings, assessments, etc. a lot throughout the year. I often miss the training that happens at my church each month. Sometimes it would really easy when I am in town to disregard the training and be home for a weekend. But it comes back to being thankful. I should be thankful for the opportunity that I have to be able to get training. And don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for the opportunity to train alongside the men and women that I get to serve with.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
