Take God and your faith seriously.  Take your commitment to truth seriously.  However, there are times that we can take ourselves too seriously.   This is fraught with danger, because we are all works in progress.  We can be hard on ourselves and even get down on ourselves.  Step back a little.  Learn to laugh at yourself.  Relax.  Rejoice.  Know that you are loved this moment by your Heavenly Abba.  Accepting His embrace brings joy.

“A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.” (Prov 17:22).
