From Ruth Meyer’s 31 Days of Praise:

Thank You that I can enjoy my strengths and gifts without pride or false modesty as I give You the credit for them, praising You rather than congratulating myself. What do I have, that I did not receive from You? All that I am and all that I have comes from You; it is all sustained by You… and I want it all to glorify You! Not to me, O Lord, not to me, but to Your name be the glory.

Pride is something we all deal with to some degree. Unless you are in the category of thinking low of yourself, which is also wrong. We should care about ourselves to an extent, but not be prideful. If you hate yourself, then you aren’t doing anyone any good. If you are so depressed you can’t think right, how on earth will you be able to show someone the joy of God?

Something that helps with this: Knowing it’s got nothing to do with you.

You can’t make yourself any better, or any worse. You are who you are, God created you that way.

The only way to make you better? Is to become more like Him. That is the only way.

Everything we have, comes from God. Give Him the Glory for all that He has done for you.
