I easily allow things to roll off my shoulders. It has helped me to keep my inner peace. I thank God for this ability. It isn’t always a good thing though. Sometimes I roll things off my shoulders and truly forget to deal with them. The things begin to pile up all around me and I’m stuck to deal with them all at once. I can’t move because these things are blocking my escape. Like I said, I am thankful for this ability to adjust and truly things don’t pile up very often. I don’t neglect everything I need to deal with…just some things. It usually boils down to people. I allow others to take and take and take. I have a hard time taking and I know I need to take sometimes. I know those who care about me want me to take, I just don’t.
I feel like a broken record saying this but it goes to prove yet again how our strengths are also our weaknesses. I cannot help but believe it is all a part of God’s perfect design. Our strengths are there to guide us, not to set us higher than others. Our weaknesses are there to humble us, not to lower us from others. There is always this balance reminding me I cannot do things alone. I am no better than anyone and there is no one better than me. We need to remember this. God made us to work together. God made each and every one of us apart but yet connected.
Let us build each other up. Let us understand each other’s weaknesses and use each other’s strengths to get through life and further the kingdom.
