What I Do I Don't Want To Do

How is it that a mother can spend an hour in her quiet time, reading the Scriptures and praying; she can see wonderful and delightful things in the Word; she can commune with God; and then, when she steps foot out of her bed, she can be the meanest, grumpiest mom in the world? Tell me. How can this be? Lord, change me.....

Surely it is more THEM than you... THEY didn't spend an hour with the Lord, that must be it.

It happens to us all. I guess that's just one of the reasons why we just have to keep on going back to our Father over and over and over again.

I TOTALLY understand! As Maddie would say, "It's Satan's fault!"

I can't tell you how many times I've gotten up off of my knees in the morning and began walking in my own power! I do this all the time! "Lord, change me" is right. Only He can. And He will. :)
