We started our new small group study last night. We chose to begin Lysa Terkeurst’s Unglued study. A bit pridefully thinking myself to not be one who becomes easily unglued, God convicted me of a couple of areas recently where if I wasn’t actually unglued, I was coming loose at the seams. I’m not one to spew out rants and raves onto other people, BUT. . . . I may be a bit more prone to think about it than I realized. As I heard myself say to the group, “I don’t really get angry much; but I do get frustrated,” I knew that the Lord and I had some work to do.
And so this verse from our lesson is my prayer for today and the coming weeks.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
— Psalm 19:14
The Word of God has shown me once again that it’s more than what I say; it’s also what I think that needs to be pleasing in His sight. I pray that He will continue to fill my heart with grace, love, joy, peace, patience, and kindnesses that reflect Him to the world around me and while He removes impatience, frustration, and pride. Leaving me with a lot to think about. . . .like Philippians 4:8 maybe, but I think I’ll save that for next week.
