Kindness + Patience.

Thursday, July 11, 2013

There is someone in my life that I’m ashamed to say deserves a lot more kindness and patience from me. In fact, it’s been bothering me so much that I’m embarrassed and disappointed with myself. This person is someone who I take for granted. I love her very much but we are very different people which means I’m frequently short-tempered with her and allow words to escape my mouth that would never be pleasing to our Lord.

I’ve written on the blog before about the power of the spoken word and yet this week as I self-reflect I’ve been a hypocrite. People compare words to seeds and this week I have sewn the negative, harsh and critical. These seeds can only grow into a destructive relationship instead of flourishing like it should.

But I do believe we can all change if we recognize our faults. So I’m writing mine down and will hold myself accountable. I’m going to try and plant seeds of love, encouragement, patience and kindness.

Psalm 141:3: Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

(Those are some thoughts of the day…now on to some fashion as well).
