To bring awareness, I’m sharing my perspective of coming to terms with learning struggles. I wrote an article for Dusty on her blog at To the Moon and Back. I speak openly and from the heart about one aspect of dealing with dyslexia – my pride. Do you have a family member with a learning struggle? Or any other type of struggle? I have a feeling this is something you can relate to!
Romans 12: 16 became a key verse when dealing with my pride. In chapter 12, the exhortation is given to not judge others, yet to see the gifts we each give and walk in those gifts. A guide for how believers walk out their faith is presented in verses 9 – 21. Verse 16 gave me a glimpse of where my pride fit into this.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
The phrase “never be wise in your own sight” grabbed me. My pride kept me believing lies and I wanted to believe that my sight was right. Read more about my struggle with pride in the article. Stay tuned to this page, because I’ll share more of my story with my struggling learner this month.
