I’m embarrassed to admit to you that all of my grand plans I shared with you in the last few weeks, like making my Bible study in front of Big Brother more consistent, not going to Sonic as much, and speaking respectfully to those I love, have just about all gone down the tubes this week.
I haven’t felt very good for a good part of this week, I haven’t been sleeping well, and Big Brother has been challenging, but those really aren’t excuses. I’ve been irritable, impatient, and short-fused. As one of my good friends said this week, “I won’t be winning any awards!” I just haven’t had the “sticktoitiveness” and self-discipline to do the things I know I ought to do.
Just like Paul says in Romans 7:15, “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” So is the conflict of human nature…
It is weeks like these that make me so thankful that God’s mercies are new every morning…and that his forgiveness is never ceasing.
And I’m also thankful for the forgiveness of the people I love (that means you, Prince Charming). :)
