“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.”
Psalms 51:1 NIV
Living in close proximity with family can conflict, eh? I keep praying, “Lord, help me be kind,” when I feel grumpy or claustrophobic. I’m used to spending my home time mostly alone, with my husband being the only other person I see. Now he’s here more. Plus my daughter and father.
Don’t get me wrong. We love each other very much, and are all getting along great. It’s just I’m not eating my normal simple meals. I’m thinking more about others needs than my own. I’m basically forced to be a better person.
And sometimes I want to listen to my podcast favs without headphones. Eat whatever crap I want to eat whenever I want to eat it. Etc.I want to come and go as I please. I want to be self-centered.
Can you relate?
So I’m asking God…
- Guard my mouth
- Guard my actions
- Guard my heart
Forgive me for my self-centered nature.
Teach me to be like you,
