I just wished that all my efforts would show some results... you know more fruit on my tree.
I want to show
patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, love, joy, peace, self control
I try, I pray, I try some more.
I simply sometimes feel overwhelmed by all my many, many sins. I feel guilty for trying to make the kids "see" their own sins.. you know the whole plank in the eye thing. Plus a number of their "sins" I know I have directly contributed too so whoo hoo, that makes me feel much better...thank you very much!
Struggling, asking forgiveness constantly from both God and my little ones.
I am tired and want to crawl into a hole, but I wouldn't be happy in that hole either because the problem isn't with the people or the world around me.. the problem is ME.
Praying for God to continue to reveal TRUTH in my life and allow me to see "my sins" and to confess with my mouth these sins.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
