Taking Inventory

If we really want to see positive change in 2013, it's time for a fearless self inventory. It's the process of taking an honest look at who we are from all perspectives: physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and relationally. This can be quite painful if we haven't practiced this level of personal transparency. In fact, we are often afraid of doing this because we'll find that our carefully constructed self image isn't accurate. Instead of owning up to our contribution to who we are we place blame on other people, our upbringing, what has been done to us, & other people's stupidity. Genuine transformation can't begin until we honestly assess who we are and how we got here. As Craig Groeschel writes in his book Soul Detox, "You can't change what you don't see."


  1. You and God are on the same wavelength with me this morning. Might I recommend another book I am reading along the same lines Honest to God: The Means of True Transformation by Joshua Weidmann.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation--I'll check that out!
