A Thick Slice of Humble Pie

Yummy. Delicious. Wow. Mmm. Give me another bite. What?! Are you kidding me? There’s nothing like another thick slice of Humble Pie. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just take a look at your life. Or, better yet, take a look at mine. The Lord has been convicting me recently of not trusting Him. Are you joking? Me? The director of a ministry? Of course I’m trusting God. Right? Here comes the Humble Pie. Topped with mint chocolate chip ice cream. Why not top it off with the best flavor ice cream ever? The truth? The Bible calls me to humble myself, so here goes. I have been struggling immensely with trusting God. And I have two choices. I can pretend to the world that I’ve got this faith and trust thing down pat. Or I can hold out my dish, grab my fork, and thank God for Humble Pie. May I have another slice please? And don’t forget the ice cream.

I have such a long way to go in learning to trust you, Lord. Please forgive my unbelief. Help me to trust you. I am so sorry, Lord, that I fall so short in trusting you. It makes no sense to me, considering how much I love you. But you know my heart, Lord. And you know what I need. I need to trust you completely, as you have told me over and again. Thank you for your patience with me, and for your mercy that never runs out. And thanks, Lord, for Humble Pie. Amen. 

Jas 4:10  “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
