I love 1st Peter 1:14-15. My desire is to be obedient to Christ but I fail Him so many times. Loved the word choice today! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
One of the prayers our SONday school teacher has each week is for a desire for holiness of our church members. Isn't than an awesome desire? I fail Him so often, too....every single day. :(
Deb, I loved the scripture from 1 Peter. Obedience is always in my heart even though I know I have been disobedient many times. Even after all these years I'm still a work in progress. So thankful He never lets me go...
Ms. Mary, I was thinking along the same lines this evening when reading in Psalms.....that God knows my heart and that I truly try....but still often come up short! ;-) Very thankful He never lets go, too!
Enjoying your statements on obedience.......quite a few bloggers have spoken on obedience....love when God gets in the middle of things to get a His message out! 😊
"God gets in the middle of things to get His message out"....love that statement, Ms. Renee. Remember that saying that I use sometimes...."if you hear it twice"? I've heard a "message" on self-control a few times this week, too! ;-)
