My heart is burdened for how I’m choosing to treat my relationship with God.
I’m finding through working with the kids at my summer job how patient God is with us. He clearly points us towards the direction we’re to take, and yet time and time again we choose to disobey even when we know the consequences to our choices. This is exactly how the kids are. They know the consequences of disobeying the leadership, but they continue to battle themselves against obedience. Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we struggle with obedience?
God, soften my heart to Your voice. Allow me to be patient with these kids just as you are patient with me. Forgive me for my disobedience, and help me to strive for perfect obedience.
