Pride………………………. Need I say more.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Prv 16:18. I have felt pretty good about not walking in pride until Tuesday. I was at the landfill unloading my trash trailer. I was in the process of picking up a 36 x 36 broken window. When I grabbed it I remember thinking to my self “be carefull you don’t want any of these broken shards of glass to fall and cut yourself in the leg. Then I hear ask Scotty he is five feet away ask him for help, NOPE I CAN GET IT ON MY OWN!” All of that in a span of about five seconds.
Well a shard of glass fell and cut my leg very badly and I got 16 stiches. I doctored up my leg and went back to the job site. While I was driving I hear “once again you thought you could do something on your own and once again you were wrong” That statement took me right back to my struggle that I often have with porn. I have found over the years that when I struggle the most is when I try to control the urges on my own instead of listening and turning it over to Him.
The other part of the story is I heard the Lord tell me to ask Scotty for help and I ignored Him
Pride and disobedience not a good combo. Lord thank you for your forgiveness! Thank you for your mercy for giving us one more day!
