I came across these thoughts in a devotional for women I have been reading......it is the desire of my heart to develop a sweet relationship with God and be unaffected by the opinions of others. I am soo easily influenced and I want to break free of that this year keeping in mind that I also need to have a meek and quiet spirit and keep my opinions to myself. :)
On another note...I am asking the Lord to help me guard my tongue and to "be ye kind one to another" especially my girls. It is soo easy to get frustrated and lash out and oh soo many times every day I am guilty of that.....the Lord has convicted me and I want the victory this year.
Pray for me as I "dig them out, get them gone" and hopefully soon I will be planting "all the blessed virtues of the Book within."
