Today ends the second week of A Mom's Nineveh 90. This past week really went downhill in pattern I am coming to know only too well.
Goals vs. Reality
So yeah, not the best week. Not the worst week either. Next week has to be better. It will be better.
A Thought from the Week...
Starting. Falling. Starting again. Failing. Picking up the cross. Again and again and again. Picking it up out of obedience, out of faith, out of love when you feel no love, and out of hope. How many times must I do this? I wonder. Time and again, I answer. This I know. And I fight to make my path God's path for me. Again and again, day after day, minute after minute.
"Have mercy on me, God, in accord with your merciful love;
in your abundant compassion blot out my transgressions.
"Thoroughly wash away my guilt;
and from my sin cleanse me.
"For I know my transgressions;
my sin is always before me.
"Turn away your face from my sins;
blot out all my iniquities.
"A clean heart create for me, God;
renew within me a steadfast spirit.
"Do not drive me from before your face,
nor take from me your holy spirit.
"Restore to me the gladness of your salvation;
uphold me with a willing spirit."
Psalm 51: 3-5, 11-14
