149- Shouldn’t be Under It, But I Am
June 11, 1985
Father, how do I get myself under you? I mean under your dominion!
I stay overwhelmed by the chores, children, clothes, errands, cleaning, etc.
Then I despise myself for being such a weak Christian and do nothing well.
Bless me, Father, bless me.
Why can’t I heed instruction (as in Proverbs 1) and be consistent?
Why have I become afraid of fellowship?
Because I feel like a failure as a Christian, I hate myself!
Bless me, bless me, Father.
~ listen to wisdom daily
~ wait for wisdom with anticipation
~ you will find life
~ you will find Jesus
~ you will get his favor
~ if you hate wisdom you love death.
Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates waiting at my doorposts, for it is he who finds life and obtains favor from the Lord.
Day by day, Georgann. Recognize your condition for what it is, pour out your heart to the Lord, and go quickly to Jesus and to the Bible. Truth waits for you, truth transforms you. You are okay. Just stay tight with Him.
