I had no idea how hard it would be to keep that promise. I have so much anger in my heart! It has turned in to a daily struggle, that more often then I like to admit, I lose. Fortunatley, for me, I know where it comes from, I just don't really know how to overcome it.
Nothing is impossible with God. If i have learned anything in these last few months, it's that He can work with anyone as long as they are willing.
Oh God I'm so willing!
I don't know where I read this, or where it came from but look at this with me...
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. 1st Corinthians 13:4-7
Now put your name at the beginning of each sentence. This is down-right convicting, at least for me.
I know God does not look for perfection, because we are human, we will make mistakes..daily...but focus on God and He will work out the rest.
