Wednesday, August 24: The Spiritual Search

i am severely sad.  i realized i made a fool of myself today over my son’s car.   i lost my cool, was irritable and cross for over an hour, snapped at a couple of guys on the phone… and now i feel like shit.

my Lord, forgive me.  can You please find it in Your heart to forgive me?

how can i ever be the woman you want me to be, dear God, if i keep acting like a spoiled child when things don’t turn up as planned or as promised?  today, i acted like one.  i was so wrong and i am deeply sorry.  tomorrow, i will call michael  and his workmate to apologize.

He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6).   my Lord, continue Your work in me and never be discouraged by my failures.

“i am a child of God only by being born again, and as His child i am good only as i “walk in the light.”  (1 John 1:7)


You always answer my prayers, dear Lord.  early this week, i asked You for help on a special need.  and already, You have granted it to me — days before the deadline.  i thank You, my dearest God.  i know i don’t deserve all Your goodness and generosity…  i am sorry that i always make You sad.  if i am sad because of my own doing, how much more for You, dear Jesus, who wants so badly to be  happy and proud of me?  please correct whatever is wrong in my life.  i surrender it all to You.  

my Lord, never leave my side.  i need You badly.

    Joy, one of my church’s leaders once said , “”Only the life teachings, and particularly the atonement of Jesus Christ can release us from this otherwise impossible predicament. Each of us has made mistakes, large or small, which if unresolved will keep us from the presence of God. For this reason, the atonement of Jesus Christ is the single most significant event that ever has or ever will occur. This selfless act of infinite consequence, performed by a single glorified personage, has eternal impact in the life of every son and daughter of our Father in Heaven—without exception. It shatters the bonds of death. It justifies our finally being judged by the Master. It can prevent an eternity under the control of the devil. It opens the gates to exaltation and eternal life for all who qualify for forgiveness through repentance and obedience.”
    Joy, I truly have a deep gratitude for Christ’s suffering on our behalf. Through his atonement,our sins are forgiven and forgotten. . . He is my Light, my Redeemer, my Savior–and yours.”
    Luv ya:)
