I Boast No More

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.

Isn’t it true that the people who most struggle with pride also struggle most with depression? Every time I am prideful and do not repent I fall into depression, because sooner or later I realize I’m not actually all that. I am not as godly, as loving, as wonderful as I really thought I was, and even when I see improvement in my life–it is only by God’s grace. Without tremendous help, I would only be getting worse and worse. In fact, it is only by God’s help that I breathe, much less love.

Let us learn to recognize pride when it comes and learn the patterns of our hearts. Then we can take every thought captive and turn to the Lord with thanksgiving.

Lord, it is only because of you!

Yours truly,

Electric Bubbles
