It's human nature to want to operate independently. In some cases, being independent is a good thing. When it comes to our relationship with God, however, we need to be dependent. Operating from a place of dependence in Christ is not only what He wants for our relationship with Him, it's then reflected on how we go about living our day to day lives.
We live in a fast-paced world where it can feel like we never have enough time to do everything we want. Sometimes we have to sacrifice our own personal time in order to fulfill other commits. Often, however, we need to be reminded that when we're serving the Lord, He blesses us abundantly for our sacrifices and even though we may have less time, He will fill our hearts with the joy, energy, and peace we each need.
God has given each of us spiritual gifts, whether we know it or not. It's important for us to learn to identify what those gifts are so we can use them the way God intended! Our gifts are given to us in order to fully love God, love others, and serve.

It doesn’t mean you have to be perfect or have no problems, but it’s imperative that you carry a level of health and wholeness before you can step into that role and expect it to be a success!
