Talk to Yourself, Mentoring Moments, the 1 min blog
We are wrapping up the topic of difficult conversations. I’ve come to realize that sometimes the hardest person to confront is yourself.
We see it played out in the encounter between Jesus and the man at the Pool of Bethesda. You can read about it in John chapter 5. Here is this poor man who had been lame for 38 years laying there waiting for a miracle. And in moves Jesus, who is love personified and asks him “Do you really want to get well?”
That guy was full of excuses. But no more than I’ve had when faced with myself and forced to realize that my everyday actions did not reflect my stated desires.
Having that difficult conversation with yourself brings you face-to-face not with your powerlessness but with your power. You recognize your ability to partner with God, make changes and get the life you really want, that is if you really want to.
Success and Progress!
