Be Open - Drop the Defensiveness

Welcome ideas that are not your own. Be open to what others have to say without getting defensive. Make it okay for others to share their ideas — even if those ideas conflict with yours.

I am still hearing positive comments from the worship service that I prepared a couple of weeks ago and the sermon that I wrote and delivered. It was a lot of work and I had some doubts. But I listened to my heart and let the Lord speak through me. It was one of the most powerful and amazing experiences I have had! The responses I have heard since that day have been so empowering for me! I look forward to doing future work like this. I am so thankful for the people who supported and encouraged me and gave me the material and space to prepare the sermon!


I encourage you to follow your heart. Put your expectation of the outcome aside. Do whatever feels good and have faith in the rest. Stand aside and let your work come through. Take time to reflect and see the messages of your life experiences.
