DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS ARE? Part of self-awareness and recovery from darkness into light is to become aware of the good things about ourselves as well as the negative that we process in the fourth-seventh and tenth steps.
It is important to embrace our powers given by our Higher Power. Without the knowledge of our spiritual gifts and special talents our long-term goals could be a little skewed. Setting long-term goals and projects that match our abilities is part of healthy recovery. God has a way of fitting our spiritual gifts to our personality type.
In other words He/they whatever label you give your HP grants us gifts we can be enthusiastic about, gifts that motivate us. Here is a list of spiritual gifts that may help you recognize which ones rise-up within yourself. True humility does not a base or deny its good qualities. False humility loves to insult the gifted and blessed of God and call them devoid of any good.
I am a child of The King and he does not make junk. There is a thing called pride in a job well done. We do the footwork in this program and when we subconsciously acknowledge our good works our self-esteem grows. It’s not a lie to acknowledge a job well done. False pride is born of lies that is how we can tell the difference between good pride/false pride and false humility or true humility. One is born of truth the other a lie. Please don’t mistake that I am attacking the act of giving God glory for our recovery, of course that is a good thing as well! I am talking about self-awareness, personal growth, and building; one right choice at a time a new self-image. A psychic change if you will.
