This is exactly all that my goal entails this year: I want to learn more about being truly obedient to God, truly wise in my faith, and I want it to to soak into every ounce of my being until it is so embedded into my soul that it becomes who I am.
We can learn to be cranky. We can learn to be rude. We can learn to complain. We can learn to be critical. You know people like this; it has become who they are. I don’t think they even realize it is who they have become sometimes. But those traits have taken over and filled their souls with a bitterness. It leaks out of them like poison. I was becoming one of them. I have had to make some major changes to separate myself and unlearn some of those behaviors.
That is not who God created us to be. He wants us to step back, put on the perspectacles, make sure we are learning to BE LOVING and GRACE FILLED–to our self and to our neighbor. And to make who we are into what He intended.
