I love my Bible study gals. We are currently working our way through The Love Dare. We began to discuss how we can find ourselves thinking we are entitled to have….. (name your entitlement).
I think sometimes it takes us a lifetime to realize we are truly entitled to very little. Entitlement mentality leads to expectations. Unmet expectations lead to disappointment which leads further down the slippery slope to frustration, anger, bitterness…..
Sometimes we can become overwhelmed with our current circumstances and forget the riches right before our eyes. I have found one sure fire way to pull your entitlement mind into proper perspective, God’s perspective.
Take a look around in your own corner of the world. You will find so many not only in need physically but many who are struggling spiritually in worse, much worse situations than your own. So, today I am thankful the Lord has allowed me to serve others. To be the arms and heart of Jesus.
Today I am thankful for the riches right before my eyes.
I am entitled to death and hell. But I have been given a free gift of an awesome life right now and life in heaven.
How amazing is that?
What are the riches right before your eyes?
Be Blessed, Lynn
If you are journaling along in the 30 day Mind of Christ Experiment, I have something for you to ponder. Write this question: Do I need to examine what I hold in my life as entitlements? What are my riches?
Friday, I have a great post for you so stop back for Mind of Christ and be inspired.
Share your voice, heart and love in the comments.
Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
