Each of us has a Core Longing, or the central message each of our hearts is longing to hear. It's another one of the Core Motivations propelling each of our thoughts, feelings and actions, but we forsake our Creator when we try to fulfill this unending craving in our own strength (Jeremiah 2:13), and we'll always be left wanting more.

Arming Ourselves For the Internal Battle We’re All Fighting
Hello my fellow Enneagram fans! It’s Your Enneagram Coach Beth, back with you again to dig a little deeper into the internal worlds of each Type. Remember, the better we understand the Enneagram and our personalities, the better we can use the insights as a GPS to keep ourselves on a healthy path in every area of our lives. It’s especially beneficial to gain a deep understanding of our Hidden Struggle, the persistent internal battle we’re always fighting, but try to keep concealed from the people around us.
Before we dive into this topic, know that this knowledge is not meant to make us cast shame or blame on ourselves or others, but rather as another reason to put our full dependence on Christ, the One who knit us together in our mother’s wombs and knows the number of hairs on our head. We belong to Him, despite every thought, emotion and battle we are fighting.
The better we understand the Enneagram and our Type's Core Motivations, the better we can use it as an internal GPS to keep ourselves on a healthy path. Enjoy this FREE DOWNLOAD of each Type's Primary Focus of Attention, the specific and automatic current that is pulling at each us in every interaction and environment.
Remember that this knowledge is not meant to bring shame about your Type's internal patterns, but rather to help you steer yourself away from unhealthy thoughts, feelings and behaviors. You are fearfully and wonderfully made in Christ's image, and He took care of everything through His life, death and resurrection.
Wherever your Primary Focus of Attention is today, take a deep breath and remember that you are God's beloved child, and no matter your internal struggles and tendencies, you can fix your eyes on Him and take rest in this truth.
