I don’t know. Day 4.

If you missed yesterday’s post, read that first. Each post this week will build on one another.

Have you started a Covid-19 journal yet? If not, start there. Go and order a fancy journal on Amazon if that would motivate you. I usually just grab an old notebook. Staple some loose paper together if that’s all you have. After this is all over, you will be glad you kept a journal during this time.

I believe at the heart of surrender is brokenness.

This is the definition of brokenness we are working off of. “In the positive spiritual sense, brokenness is the condition of being completely subdued and humbled before the Lord, and as a result, completely yielded to and dependent upon Him also.” (deeptruths.com)

Today I want us to take a closer look at the word humbled. I have really struggled with what humility means. I have seen a lot of examples of false humility, but what does true humility look like? Is it wrong to proud of something you worked really hard on? I went on a quest to find out. As a result of my search, I have started to see humility like this: We can do great things, but God can always do it better. Humility is knowing your place in relationship to God.

Journal questions for today.

1. How would you define humility?

2. How do you think humility and surrender are linked?

More tomorrow,

Lisa
