I was talking to a friend who had helped her 16 year nephew with some issues he’s been having regarding drinking, staying out all night and breaking house rules.
“I’m not sure if I handle the situation the right way,” she questioned herself. “I was thinking of how so-and-so would have handled it and I wondered if I was too lineate.”
My friend couldn’t see her significance. She was honest with the boy and shared her own truth on the matter. Most importantly the boy, a rebellious teenager, came to her.
Why do we think our best isn’t good enough? Where did these ideas come from that others know how to handle situations better than us?
While it is wise to have a trusted friend and/or spiritual advisor as a sounding board, we have all been given gifts. We ARE gifts to this world. We will draw towards us the people who are best for us to learn from and help.
Trust that God is playing us like a chess game and he knows all the moves before they happen. Trust everything is as it should be and your best is good enough!
