Crown Me, NOW!

So that’s exactly what I am giving it.

      Thanks Andrea for your comment… Now that we both have identified the problem, let’s kick it in the seat of its pants! We are Pride and Entitlement FREE!!! Keep Shining!


  2. I like this 4 things that are calling killers…I have to admit that I can’t think of a time that I’ve experienced the entitlement disease so that really didn’t resonate with me but one of the other three really hit me and that one was impatience…that’s my struggle right now and to know that it’s a calling killer has me ready to do some work to figure out what to do.

      Whoo Hoo Princellar. I agree, knowing its a calling killer is eye opening and makes it more immediate to get under control. Well I am excited to hear back from you on how it’s going. I bless your spirit with Patience and believe you will find the tools and resources to help you deal with your challenge. Find Scriptures dealing with patience and let God work on your heart. Keep Shining!

  3. Can I just tell you, I adore you! And I love everything you said here and you explained it so well! I struggle with this too. If you ever want to do a guest post on entitlement on my blog, PLEASE contact me!!

      Aly, I know by now you know I equally share the adoration. I am willing to share whatever you need me too and how God leads me to get the word out… I am about it. I will contact you soon. Keep Shining beauty!

  4. Absolutely! I’m teaching a ladies’ Bible study from the book, “Lies Women Believe, and the truth that sets them free.” I think you would like the book – the thing that jumped out at me was that we aren’t entitled to be happy. Look at all the missionaries falling on hard times, some imprisoned and killed for our faith. Ouch. We need to realize that we should not expect a crown here on earth. We don’t deserve anything and the blessings are not earned, only given by our Great God. Preach it, sister!

  5. Oh me, I think I have struggled with this a time or two, probably impatience more than anything. I love your perspective and your video was great!

      Thanks Renee!!!

  6. I’ve been fortunate not to suffer from this entitlement attitude. However, as a pastor’s wife and with our ministry to the poor, we see it often, with food baskets, and in the church believing they should be healed or be exempt from… I always remember I didn’t do anything to be born in America. I am truly blessed it happened though. I am blessed and will serve Christ because He died for me.

      First Lady Jena, Thank you for your comment. I strongly agree with you as it relates to entitlement in church. I didn’t get too deep in this blog, but it is my desire to share my heart more as it relates to this issue. Keep Shining, MM

  7. Oh, yes! We somehow think that we should have all things. It’s only by God’s grace we were born here and have the blessings we have. Keeping my eyes focused on Jesus is the only way to avoid feeling like I’m owed something! Thanks for being so honest!

      Ahh Thanks Allison for your comment!

  8. The phrase “entitlement syndrome” reminds me of all the complaints on Twitter yesterday from school students because the school district had blocked Snapchat on their WiFi network. Seriously, I don’t think they’re even entitled to have WiFi at all, let alone every distracting social network they might want.

      I mean let’s be serious they have WiFi and they are complaining… oh well they are kids and I bet when I was there age and privileged to have more than my parents I can think of a time I was in the same predicament. Let me not judge (lol). Thanks for your comment Beth!

  9. I struggle with this, too. It’s a daily challenge!

      Jenny Jen Jen, Thanks for responding. Let me just say… I didn’t realize I had it as bad as I did. #workinprogress over here!

  10. I have dealt with this from time to time, but I never would have thought to post about it. Thank you for sharing this important information!

      My pleasure Wendy. Thanks for leaving a message!

  11. Because I’m a Social Worker in a welfare office, I see entitlement A LOT! It seems to be worse in the Millennials, but the Baby Boomers and GenXers aren’t immune. For that very reason, I work on not being entitled.

  12. Hi Michanda,
    First of all…you’re such a cutie!
    I think we all feel a sense of entitlement at some point in our lives. I like what you said about thinking ‘Hey, I did the work, so now where’s my reward?’ and how that isn’t the way it necessarily works…you should do the work and the rewards will come IF and when they do. I like the reminder that every opportunity that comes our way is a blessing! So true.
    Keep sparkling like that beautiful necklace you’re wearing! 🙂 XOXO, Erin

      Thanks Erin!!!!

  13. I feel grateful that my parents corrected us on this behavior often growing up. They shared with us their experiences growing up very impoverished, but also made sure that they saw sacrifices they were making growing up so we were aware.
