Note to Self: Less Thought, More Trust

I think, I think, I think – Too often I’m consumed with my own opinion; I’m not sure where I got this sense of self importance! When it comes to things of God, I’ve found, that it doesn’t always matter how you feel – it matters what you know. The fact that you feel like God has abandoned you is irrelevant for we are told in his word that he will never leave us.

Far from a Godly Attitude

I sometimes get prayer requests via an International Christian group on Facebook and they often come in different languages. I received one such email today and based on the subject heading it appeared to be foreign; I opened it just to get it out of my inbox & breathed a sigh of relief when it was indeed in a different language.

If it’s not in English I can’t read it and if I can’t read it then it’s not my responsibility to pray, I thought. What a horrible attitude!
I’m actually ashamed to admit that I thought about prayer in such away. As if it’s some laborious chore and trying to weasel out of it was almost understandable.
Needless to say, I want/need to change this attitude but as always, I can’t do it alone.

God, keep moulding me and let your attitudes become mine. Without you I’m all wrong!
