personal journey

This was a journal of my progress through the book "The Purpose Driven Life"...after having read the book, I know that I've only begun to learn about God's plan for my life.

Daily Bread

1 Corinthians 13:4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up.

Sometimes I find fault with everything and everyone. I get wrapped up in how someone else makes me feel, that I do not see how my own actions are part of the problem.

Practicing love is not easy. It means setting aside my selfish desire to have someone behave a certain way for my benefit, and doing the same for them. A tough task indeed.

There are so many things that I need to be aware of to be a better Christian, but even just a better person. I let relationships fall to the wayside, and I can be pretty unforgiving at times.

Expecting others to give me special consideration, without doing the same in return. I need to do less reflecting on this and more doing something to change it.

I would not criticize the one who works,
The one who listens to God's Word and heeds;
But I would criticize myself, dear Lord,
Confess to You my faithless words and deeds. -Hess
