I look at the title of this blog.....
1st thing i read this morning:
Romans 12:2 'Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, BUT be transformed by the RENEWING of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will.
2nd thing...Isaiah 13:6 Wail! God's day of judgement is near- an avalanche crashing down from the Strong God.
6 verses and I stop
Revelation of character
I am a daughter of Christ and I in front of my 9 year old Granddaughter called my daughter a 'bitch'. In fun I can justify. Why can i call it silly or fun or cute to do that?
I am thinking this morning about my 'words'.
I say, I love Jesus
I prove w/my ACTIONS and words, over and over- I am that in name only.
I am sorry Father and I am sorry Emma Grace, my first precious Gift from God Granddaughter.
I am sorry.
I will- run into Your Grace filled arms and not wallow in this or talk about it ad nauseum AND I will from now on, in remembering Romans and my mantle of 'daughter' watch my words and focus on You.
I will never call anyone a 'bitch' again and obediently listen before I speak all the while remembering Your love and Grace for all and spend the rest of my life listening to Your Spirit guide my words - prayerfully into discussion and LISTENING to them for openings to have those discussions where THEY are searching and that could potentially bring THEM into a knowing of YOU, Your Son, Your Grace.
I am sorry Emma.
