kindness & humility




kindness. humbleness.

i love those words. i love those things. they hold such power and love in them that i cannot help but be astounded by them. to have pride stripped from you and to be the least of all? not only that, but to be kind?

to be kind, to be humble.

chew on that.

i'm striving to let God work in me. i'm striving to love him more and more. as a human, i am often swept away with promises of greatness and being more than i am. as a human, i often think that i deserve more than i do; that i am better than other people.

to be humble! oh, to be humble. my self strains against it. to be at the bottom and serve others. but not grumpily and with a bad attitude thinking, "i deserve more than this." but to be kind and glorify the Lord in these dirty tasks. these things that only servants are made for.

what a hard, astounding thing.

something only He's capable of doing in me.

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothes yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 
Colossians 3:12

  8. yesyesyeslkfjdlkjldkf. i feel like that's all i can ever comment on your posts cause they're just that good. i have been thinking on this so much lately. and woow. it's crazy. sometimes (you know that one time every decade?) you think you've got it and then you realize you're proud in your humility and you just bash your head and get on your knees before Jesus again. cause really you'll never get it. but Jesus will. and that's what i really need to be dwelling in.
    THANKS FOR THIS LOVE xx
