Catch the part of you that knows better than anyone else, that never stops inserting and asserting itself in the moment.

James 1:19 – Speak Without Accusing

Give up the part of yourself that is always looking to dominate.

Colossians 3:13 – Forgive Without Punishing

Be present to the pain in you… without blaming another. Refuse to fight or protect yourself.

Ephesians 4:15 – Share Without Pretending

Listen instead of feigning interest. Actually give your attention to the person with you.

Philippians 2:14 – Enjoy Without Complaint

Catch the part of you that never stops comparing, and stop judging.

Corinthians 13:7 – Trust Without Wavering

Colossians 4:2 – Pray Without Ceasing

Never forget your helplessness. Remember the cost of sacrificing yourself, which is to give yourself completely to what wants to give itself to you.
