I believe God has convicted me that, deep down in my soul, I treasure these people and things more than Him. Yes, I still know Him. Yes, I still love Him. Yes, I still belong to Him. But I've been chasing my fleshly desires.

Self-esteem isn't everything. And it should never be about pride, self-centeredness, or overconfidence. Rather, it should be about realizing our identity in Christ. We don’t have to be ashamed or uncomfortable about who we are if we belong to the King.

I believe that everything in life—especially the Christian’s life—is a balance. There’s a balance between being unwilling to use our gifts from God and being too willing to use them.
