I Want To Be Humbled in God's Spirit

The Elephant ...Beautiful!
My Favorite Animal ...Thank-you God for such a lovely creature!
Like the elephant, I feel as if I am a giant. And elephants are giants. But if you really look at the elephant, they are humbled creatures. Only when provoked do they become enraged with pride and anger. Pride can change a person. I am ashamed to say that sometimes I am too full of pride. I let things build up and then I let pride take over. Pride is harmful in some ways. You can sometimes be too prideful to say many things like I'm sorry, I love you, or even admit when you are wrong. Take in consideration Proverbs Chapter 8:13-"The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate." Then Proverbs Chapter 29:23-"A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit." I don't want to be so full of pride that I forget how to be humble in spirit. I don't want to hate, nor do I want to be hated. I want to be used by God to reach someone with something from him. I often get comfortable in my own zone. I don't want to be that way. I don't want to get so into my ways that I forget about why God sent me here. I don't want to be like that. I am asking God to change me. I want to be different. If I have to be a warrior, then I want to be a warrior in God's army. I don't want to see a battle in my life... for me. I want a battle for God's Glory.
