Today was another day I long to forget. It was one of those days where patience, love, and kindness were not my strong suits. Shamefully, I admit this, knowing that I still have a long way to go!!!
I should have known that today was going to be testy when I read this morning,
A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. Proverbs 15: 1-2
Part of my problem is that I allow my son to push me and push me until I lose my cool with him. Instead of being diligent to discipline in areas where he needs constant attention, I let things slide... until I burst!!
So, part of his problem is me! My lack of diligent discipline. My lack of self-control when I want him to have self-control. My lack of taking heed to myself when I want him to take heed to himself! When will I ever learn????
What a wretch I am! Who will save me from myself?? Thank God, He will, through Jesus Christ!!!
I am a great sinner, and He is a great Savior!!!
