    Wow, Scott … that spoke to me. Like you, I’m an introvert and spend much of my time analyzing things … to a fault. Thanks for sharing your heart openly. I appreciate your ministry! God bless ~ Jan

    Great words Scott. I am the opposite. I am an extrovert so one of my biggest faults is being so busy I don’t spend enough time allowing God to dig down and show me my shortcomings. You are right in that we all have our struggles, yet God loves us and wants us to come to Him as we are. Thanks again for sharing your heart.- Terry Cooke

    Brought me to tears as I fight many times with the idea that God loves me unconditionally when man puts so many conditions on love. Always need to hear the reminder that God does love us even with our faults. Great words.

    I’m joining the crowd too, Scott! Such powerful words for this over-analytical thinker as well. I once heard this phrase, not remembering where or who said it, but it was simply this..

    “Paralysis due to over-analysis…”

    When you dig deep, it’s so very true. The more we dwell and focus on all of who we are not, the more paralyzed we become, producing that shame and guilt we so often feel for not being “better” at who God created us to be. It’s a daily process for me. I’m getting better, specifically in relation to making decisions NOW instead of thinking for weeks about all the what-ifs and what-nots, which ultimately lead to me not even making a decision and pushing that one to the side with the rest of the decisions I’ve never made.

    […] To all of my readers in 2011, I want to thank you for your continued support and encouragement. With this week being the holiday, and my final week of working part-time before I make final preparations to move to Haiti, I have decided to take the week off from blogging. I will be back to it on a weekly basis next week, but for now, just in case you missed any of them, here are the top posts from 2011. 1. Speaking in Tongues FAQ 2.
