I was good up till that last phrase, "that God will use you." What? What about God changing them!?! They're the one at fault, the one in the wrong. <sigh>
God of profound forgiveness and mercy, change my heart.
Help me to see that s/he is doing the best s/he can.
Help me to see the brokenness in others that my own heart might be softened.
Help me to breathe when my buttons are being pushed, to see deep within me the brokenness that created the buttons in the first place.
Help me to be kind, understanding, forgiving, to breathe deeply and allow others the grace they need.
Help me to be a peacemaker.
Change my heart, O God, may I be (more) like you.
I'm a wife, mom, pastor, human...probably not in that order. I struggle each day to be faithful to God, to my family and to my call as a Christian and all of those previously-mentioned roles. I pray to be positive, kind and thoughtful, but tend to fall short on all counts. I am inspired by sunrises and enjoy taking pictures (mostly my kids, deer in the yard and sunrises). I waste time playing stupid computer games and wishing I'd been better at all of the aforementioned roles. ;-)
