The Power of Humility!

Just Pray!

It is often said that humility and kindness is a sign of weakness; so in our pursuit in this thing called life, we often do everything that we can to figure things out for ourselves, we try to work out our own problems, we desire to be our own boss. For the sake of not appearing to be weak. In some scenarios that might be ok; but if we really desire to have an easier more productive life – then we would  be quick to humble ourselves, allowing God/Universe to work in and through us. 

The following is an excerpt of the benefit of taking on the virtue of humility:

…the very situation that has wounded you can now become that which heals you, if you allow it to take you deep into the mystery of the soul’s dependence on the Divine. Do not forget that while your wound is more powerful than your conscious mind, God is more powerful than your wound.

I cannot, but God can! I cannot, but God can! becomes your mantra. And in realizing that the power of your mortal self is small when compared to the power of God, you will no longer need to “puff yourself up” in an effort to make yourself “big enough” to handle your problems. In fact, you will discover the power of true humility, deferring to a power that is greater than your own. God is big enough to handle your problems – so you need not be.
