1. Ouch, Pride..that’s the one that got me. Thank you for these insights. God and I have a lot of work to do.

    1. God’s got a list on me LOL It’s quite the ‘to do’ list that I have given Him that I need to work on and need His help. LOL Pride is one of them!!

    2. Yes, pride is the one that stopped me in my tracks, it can sneak up on you before you realize it! God gave me several opportunities to put my words into practice shortly after writing this post, don’t we all just love when He does that ?! 🙂💕

  2. Stephanie, thank you for addressing some of the things that we have a tendency to shrug off or to take lightly in the “just who I am” category. God will stop at nothing to encourage his much-loved children to mature. I want to do better at cooperating with his methods!

    1. That is a perfect way of putting it Michele…just shrugging off. I love articles that really get to the heart of the “heart issues” we have and how to face them. Stephanie did a great job of that!

    2. Yes, I so agree Michele! That is one of the many attributes of God that I appreciate. He is never wanting us to stay stagnant in our faith,but instead is moving us forward to become more like Him!

  3. Having literally stumbled in the dark when my dog left a balled up rug, I want to avoid stumbles of any kind. So thankful God warns us and provides the way of escape. Thanks Stephanie and Diane.

    1. Yes, that is such a great example and God is always there to catch us when we lose our balance. Thanks for providing this example, Debbie!

  4. I’ve been reading Brant Hansen’s newest book, The Truth About Us, and he’s really convicting me about pride. So Stumbling Block #1 is really speaking to me this morning. Thanks for both these lists, Stephanie, not just of the stumbling blocks but also of the ways to overcome them.

  5. Stephanie,

    Wow, #1 struck a chord inside of me. It is so true the things that bother me in others happen to be the things I wish I could be. I’m the disciplined one, wound tight getting things done. I long to be carefree and let things go easily. You have given me some things to consider this week. Thank you. Maree

    1. Thank you for sharing that, Maree. Yes it is something that I’ve noticed more and more, even in myself in different ways. I love how the Spirit reveals things to us, but Oh boy it is sometimes a big wake up call! 🙂
