From Surviving to Thriving: The Joy of Knowing Yourself (Psalm 139: 1-2)

“O Lord, you have searched me and known me. 
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from far away.” 
-Psalm 139:1-2

People sometimes say, “If I had known that I would have done things differently.”  The same thing can be said about ourselves.  “If I had known that about myself I would have done things differently.”  Getting to know our own selves and our strengths and weaknesses can be a bit of a slough.   It can also be an excellent tool for self-awareness, self-compassion, and growth.

Try out a personality typing tool to help you get to know yourself better.  Or pull out an old personality test you have taken in the past.  Does it hold true?

This week try taking an online personality test from your favorite tool.  Or read a book about different personality types.  Another idea would be to subscribe to a podcast about personality types.  Listen in and see what you can learn about yourself.  

Knowing your good qualities and your stumbling blocks is a gift to yourself and to those around you!

We hope this brings you some comfort and joy! You can spread the joy by liking, commenting and sharing this post with others. Be sure to subscribe and never miss a post.

Some Comfort and Joy was developed as a devotional resource that follows the rhythms and seasons of the liturgical year from an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective.
