Grace for the Good Girl-Chapters 7-9

Some thoughts on chapters 7-9 from Grace for the Good Girl…

Chapter 7-Can’t fall apart
Highlighted-”Once we admit we can’t manufacture circumstances, manage everyone’s opinion of us, or be the all-knowing counselor, then we will be eager to transfer our trust in ourselves to trusting in another.”
Pondered-”Are you in the habit of teaching people you have no needs? How does it feel when they believe you?”

Chapter 8-Picket fences
Highlighted-”I have missed out on a lot of freedom because of my fear of rejection. We may call it ‘people pleasing,’ but it is entirely self-serving because it is really all about keeping myself comfortable.”
Pondered-”In what ways might you be hiding behind your comfort zone?”

Chapter 9-When it gets ugly
Highlighted-”It was important for me to get to a place where I saw myself as a prodigal, because the weak recognize their need so much more quickly than the strong.”
Pondered-”In what ways are you living like a servant rather than a daughter?”

Summary-“Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours.” (Luke 15:31)
