Have you ever asked yourself “Why”? Why do I act this way? Why do things keep happening to me? Why ……………………?
Maybe, just maybe, the answers are easier to find then we think. The answers are within us!
Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God and to someone I trust.
Matthew 5:8 Happy are the pure in heart.
But it’s not easy or I would go as far as saying “it’s impossible” to go it alone.
Do I _____________________?
live in denial
justify my behaviors
continually repeat bad behaviors even though I’m convicted to stop
live more concerned about others thoughts
withdraw within my own 4 walls
Do I ______________________?
seek out Jesus’s love and guidance and insight
admit when I have done wrong
ask others to help hold me accountable
wait for God to show me my weakness
search out lasting, strong relationships with others
My sin is a symptom of my choices. The unseen things that are harboring in my heart. Things I haven’t given over to God. So I’m choosing to seek out God to help me make better ones.
Lord, Where would I be without you? I shutter to even think. I am grateful for your steady hand in my life. Help me to look beyond myself and be that hand for others. Amen!
