GOD is BRUISING my EGO

Every morning, my friend “Doña” sends out a daily scripture. This morning it was:

So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.
1 Corinthians 3:7,9

I replied:

But that’s hard on my EGO!!”
(I wanna be the one to do it)

Doña:

Have a little talk with Jesus makes it right

Me:

When I spend time with Jesus He keeps walloping my ego Over’nOver’nOver.”
Tells me “It’s for my own good.” Says it “Hurt Him more than it hurts me.”

Doña:

Hard as it is to believe…. it is true

Later in the morning, I mentioned the messages to my WW and made the comment that I’m beginning to realize that much of the turmoil I go through in life has come as a result of my EGO.
I wanna do it myself! ThkQVeryMuch

EGO has been a major theme as I’ve started blogging about this journey of recovery. I did a search and it’s mentioned in at least 10 of the 90 or so posts . God hammering on my EGO seems to be one of His Major Themes in my life as well.

He keeps reminding me it’s because He Loves me and because one day I prayed for Him to change me. I suppose it’s too late now to change my mind. He promised to never leave me. Kinda like “Lord, give me patience!” RIGHT NOW!!!

O’course, when I prayed that prayer, I was at the end of my ability to affect any change in me on my own. I now see it was His Love that brought me to the point of that prayer.

One of my fav posts is this one: HOTEL EGO
