You’re not losing weight. Your relationships seem to be going nowhere. You’re still at the bottom of the ladder at your job, with no hopes of climbing anytime soon. God isn’t answering your prayers. Nothing goes right in your life.
What if the reason things aren’t going well in life is because of you?
That may be hard to swallow at first glance, I know, but think about it for a minute.
I used to think everything bad that happened in my life was every one else’s fault. I got fired from that job because my boss just didn’t understand me. Most likely the truth revolved around the fact that I had serious issues with authority.
I was morbidly obese because my sexual abusers hurt me and forced me to eat. The truth was I chose to eat to cover up the emotions I didn’t want to deal with due to the trauma of those events. My weight problem was my fault, no one else’s.
It’s so easy to blame others for our troubles, especially God. We get frustrated because he isn’t answering our prayers. What if the problem really isn’t on God’s end, but ours?
