Today we’re continuing our current series, Blind Spots, by talking about a particularly sneaky one—self-sufficiency. For many of us the desire to “do it ourselves” and be independent can be incredibly strong, but today our friends Hope Blanton and Christine Gordon of At His Feet Studies are going to help us understand the beauty of dependence.

We pray this conversation encourages you to lift your eyes from yourself, to release your grip on all the things you strive to do, and to look instead to Christ, whose grace is enough to sufficiently meet your every need. 


  • What does the pull of self-sufficiency look like in your life? 
  • What are we essentially saying when we decide to rely on ourselves instead of fully relying on God?
  • How might you come alongside someone else in their limits or encourage someone else to embrace their God-given limits for the glory of God?
  • What might it look like for you to rely on the Lord while you tackle your to-do list today?
  • What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?
