The Danger of Thinking you Know
There’s an incredibly common message in the growth community that you don’t need to know “The How” - It is a POWERFUL message that combats the belief that we need to know exactly what to do in order to do anything properly. There’s a subtle other, and less talked about twist on this though. Thinning that you DO know how ...often followed by, “And I am not capable!” I quietly suffered with this lie in my head for a few years after a vasectomy. I was incapable of offering Whit the family she wanted, I was outside of God's plan for our marriage, and I had blown it with a selfish decision. And it felt so true because “I know exactly how pregnancy happens ...and I’m not capable.” Or maybe - I don’t know as much as I think I do and when I see an impossible situation I will expect God to do a miracle.
