The humility that God asks of us brings confidence, wholeness, and peace. There is an indescribable freedom and joy that characterizes the new spiritual season that begins when we let God awaken, equip, and guide us. When we face a task that we know we cannot do alone, then it becomes clear that God is doing it through us. It is both humbling and exciting to see what God can do when we live fully into our gifts. Life is full of wonderful surprises. It is a Christmas morning of the spirit that never ends.
