Have you ever had an “ah ha” moment when you were convicted that you acted or said something where you were a jerk in that situation? Recently, I (DeAnna) was asked to do something that I didn’t want to do. Instead of being joyful or considering the blessing, I automatically went into complaining. Part of it stems from doing something similar in the past and ending up being burned. That’s no excuse, but I felt like it was and instead of being open, I closed off and mumbled.
It hit me once the day was upon me, I was being a jerk about the whole situation.
Forgive me Lord for being a jerk to some of your children who you delight in. You delight in all of us! Help me to see others and new situations through your eyes.
