I hate what I become when that happens. I become boring and a bit self-absorbed.
I can make it so that it isn’t my fault. “But God’s directing me to write!” or another one of my favorites is “If I’m not productive, God will take these ideas away and have someone else write them.”
I’m disgusted with myself when that happens. And I have the audacity to bring God into it!
How do you shake off the grip of egotistical living? What brings you to your senses and pulls you up for air?
