i write stuff from time to time on sheets of paper filed somewhere on my desk . . . or in my computer hidden in some weird sounding file . . . then i forget about it .. . well after having a miserable day yesterday, all because i became impatient and unkind to my husband, tired of the constant pain he was in and my having to put up with his comments . . . then having to spend last night and today repenting of my bad behaviour and knowing i will have to wait a few days or a week before life will hopefully be "fine again" around here, i came across this note i had written to myself .. . hmmm, shoulda found it yesterday morning already . . . so i’m sharing . . . if this blog is read by YOU (whoever you may be), i guess you needed this reminder too . . . i called it . . . so much as it depends on you
so much as it depends on you . . .
that verse has always spoken to my heart . . . holding ME accountable, for MY actions . . .
it is always easier to blame something else besides oneself . . . my husband is a lousy christian, i am too weak to do this . . . etc etc. but what our actions are "depends on us". . . yes, the mistakes we made along the way have depended on us too! but our reactions are in the HERE AND NOW, and depend upon the knowledge we possess . .
SO MUCH AS DEPENDS ON YOU
so today, make your attitude, reactions, decisions as bible based as you know how . . . because the Lord will carry through His part of the "doing, knowing, helping" but He has left something for us to do . . .
so much as depends on you . . .
