Lord, come and change us to be a sign of your love.
It requires getting out of my comfort zone.
It requires me to do things that I don’t necessarily want or like to do.
And it requires me to let go.
Let go of some things that hold me back. Things that bog me down.
There is a lot of talk in the “blog-o-sphere” about being real. Not just putting the good, pretty stuff out there for people to read. But real, sometimes ugly and not-so-good. And it would be an accurate statement to say that my weekend contained some ugly and not-so-good.
I thought about the words. I thought about the changes I needed to make. I thought about how hard it can be to change. But I knew it was necessary. Changes had to be made.
It wasn’t easy. But I was able to talk a few things out and John helped me see some things in a different light.
And slowly…things began to improve.
WHY am I SO stubborn????
Lord, you use interesting things to reach me. The words in a song. Beautiful scenes in nature. All of you creation…thank you for using these things to speak to me. Thank you for your patience, for hearing my cry.
I continue counting my gifts…
