Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.
Do you have this kind of remorse and sadness that God’s commands are not being followed? I don’t and now I feel guilty that I don’t. I even sometimes let my children get away with things that I know are sinful, but I don’t want to deal with at that moment.
I feel like I don’t give my children enough spiritual guidance. I am the diciplinarian in our house, so I guess I play the roll of bad cop. Ugh! I don’t like the title, but I guess I am perfect for the part. I am a yeller. I feel like I can’t help it, but I know from God’s word that I can. I have a short fuse and a tiny bit of a temper problem. There I said it. I am working on it I promise! I pray and read my bible and I am really trying to listen for God. It just always seems like the distractions get in the way. I have to empty my head, so to speak.
Thank you Jesus for these realizations.
We should not only praise God when things are going well.
