I am having a problem. I am being lazy. It is stressful – from not having anything to do. I am being slothful. So, I spent $288 on a long-term diet plan. When I saw my husband, I strategically let him in on my spending. He responded with some discouraging words to me about how I cannot commit to any plan. I replied by threatening him with cutting words that I would tell my family what he said. He stopped dead in his tracks and I felt the urgent need to pray. Will you pray with me?
Forgive me for my cutting words towards my spouse.
(Also, thank you for putting it in my head that I should not share the argument with my daughter because it is not age-appropriate.)
I have violated scripture distastefully, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” (Gal 2:20)
I just read this verse this morning which mattered greatly in my prayer.
And this afternoon, I act as I forgot my prayer.
I realized that though yearly, monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, and every second, I should be glorifying you, I am not perfect.
Thank you for letting my imperfections draw You closer to me.
“Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant will be healed.” (Mathew 8:8) I am the servant, Lord.
