Yet not I

What do you like most about yourself?

I don’t even know how to begin to answer this one. The dislike question was much easier. LOL

Well, here goes. The things I like about myself, I cannot take any credit for because all of my “good” qualities are the fruit of the grace of God. I guess what I like most about myself now is that I am being given the courage I need to get out of my comfort zone(s) without “liquid courage.” It’s one thing to get all liquored up and post videos of myself playing along with Fleetwood Mac, but it took strength from through prayer to get up in front of the church and sing & play all by myself.

See, when I was in high school, I quit the youth choir before Bro Tommy got a chance to attempt to make me to a solo…because that was just not going to happen. No way was I going to sing all by myself in front of people. Yes, this kind of cowardice from the girl who wanted to be a rock star when she grew up. :giggle:

So, yeah. What I like most about myself is the change that is taking place in my life. I don’t know what is in store for me, and I doubt that it has anything to do with music, but it is ok if it does or if it doesn’t.

Galatians 2:20 (New American Standard Bible)

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

    When I preached at the local (at that time) church, the pulpit had a piece of carpet attached to the top, out of sight of the congregation. When preaching, it was considered “normal” to be hanging on by the clawed fingers of both hands. Scared? Oh, yeah!

    yeah it’s hard for me to answer that question too. I guess it’s a good thing when you find it hard to toot your own horn.

    i forgot to say that God is also a sourch of people happiness. So when a man feel himself happy, that means he pleased the God. So which character or behavior of a this man make pleaded the God is the answer.

  1. […] For too long, I’ve been paying too little attention to some of the things that are most important in my life.  I consider it fitting to start anew with the beginning of Advent, which is the beginning of the Catholic liturgical year.  Lots of things have been happening in my life to get my attention focused on the important things.  A small thank you to DragonLady, from DragonLady’s World, who helped contribute to getting myself more on track with her post today.
