Yes, I know I have two blogs on one day, but each seemed equally important to me.
I talked in my previous blog about a check list I have each day, but it may not be the kind of check list that you might think, so I want to tell you about what my check list is like.
It goes something like this:
Lord, look in to my heart and see me, test my heart and see my mind, see if their is any evil in me and remove it . PS 26:2-3
__. Where did I show Love today? __. Instead of Love where did I show Hatred?
__. Where did I show Joy today? __. Instead of Joy where did I show Heartache?
__. Where did I have Peace today? __. Instead of Peace where did I show Feverish Unrest?
__. Where did I have Patience today? __. Instead of Patience where did I show Impatience?__. Where did I have Kindness today? __. Instead of Kindness where did I have Cruelty?
__. Where did I have Goodness today? __. Instead of Goodness where did I have Misery?
__. Where did I have Faithfulness today? __. Instead of Faithfulness where did I have Infidelity?
__. Where did I have Meekness today? __. Instead of Meekness where did I have Arrogance?
__. Where did I have Self-control today? __. Instead of Self-control where did I have Self-confidence?
Dear Lord, Please forgive me for my acts other than that of good and help me to grow and learn from my mistakes. Remind me that all these questions do apply to everyone that came into my life today or should have come into my life had I done what I should have done, but also do not let me forget that I must answer all these questions to include how I feel about myself as well, for if I can not see the errors of my ways, then I could not see the light to you. For if I did not have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness and self-control how would I ever be able to share it with others? What negative things such as hatred, heartache, feverish unrest, impatience, cruelty, infidelity, arrogance and self-confidence did I have today? These are things that if I am any part of it within myself it takes me further from your light and how then could I help another? I couldn't, so please Lord, correct my heart, my mind and my soul today and not only save myself from harm but save others as well, for we can not give what we do not have, but what we do have we will give, so make it be that of which brings us closer to your light.
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
