When I have been confronted by my own personal failures, mistakes and points of growth….these have been some of my most painful moments.
Isn’t it better to live in denial land where everyone likes you and you like yourself?
There have been moments this year where I have been confronted by my own failings. Moments where I have realised of my own lack of self awareness. I have experienced the pain of seeing something in my own life which I don’t like, something I wish wasn’t there.
The natural inclination in these moments is to run. But how do you run from yourself? Maybe you run from those people who show a mirror to yourself. Maybe you run from moments of sitting and reflecting and allowing God to speak into your life.
I am so aware there is no fast track to personal growth. But I do know it involves pain. All growth does.
