My favorite song...I will follow

Our God.

I really do like this song. The only bit I would change is I would remove the "our". Not our God, but God!

My big mouth

Yesterday I had a fight with my hubby over nothing really important, and out of my mouth came such filth that it actually shocked me. But  I was so angry, at him and at myself (for realising that I now had to apologise for what i had said), I didnt want to. It took me over an hour of  wrestling with my emotions before I did so. And then, I messed that up to0. I was still angry over the incident that I said Sorry....but..I am not the only one to blame here.  I couldnt just hold my tongue back, because in my heart I felt that he was to blame for starting the fight.
Pride is a hard emotion to work with. To humble yourself and just say sorry regardless, is an incredibly hard thing to do.

Proverbs 11:2
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Colossians 3:7-9
You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips
 Psalm 4:4
In your anger do not sin;
Proverbs 14:17
A quick-tempered man does foolish things,

I thank God for His word, which brings life, truth, wisdom and knowledge.......and FREEDOM
I still have a long way to go........BUT....I have come a long way to!

Prayer Thursday

Today is my third Thursday that I have dedicated to prayer for my family and friends. I pray that I begin to form  habit of this.

Today Lord, I pray that your show me how to pray for my family and friends.

His word will not return void, but shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the things for which I sent it. Isaiah 55.11

As I sit here I am reminded that Gods compassion is renewed every morning and His faithfulness is great.. The Lords is good to those who hope in Him, to the one who seeks him.
