Mirror Mirror On The Wall

 Romans 7:15-16 (The Message)

What I don't understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise.  So if I can't be trusted to figure out what is best for myself and then do it, it becomes obvious that God's command is necessary. 

Taking a good look in the mirror of myself this week, I come so short of what the Lord asks of me. I have found myself becoming  like someone I never want to be. 

My responses to inconveniences and some tasks that have been put before me, have fallen short of being graceful.

I recognize that no matter what comes my way,  my response is always my choice. So, in knowing that and failing quite frequently, I am burying myself in God's Word again and asking for a fresh touch of His Spirit upon my life. 

It is He that gives me the grace to respond correctly. It is not within myself. May I hear His gentle voice within my desperate  heart each time the choice of how I respond is presented before me. 

I know He is and will always be faithful to me. It is my steps of obedience to His voice that will "get me there" to become the person, the woman that is in my heart to be.
