"In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your paths."
Coming though what I have in the last two months reminds me of the above scripture.
Sometimes even though we think we are walking Gods way, we are not completely.
At least I haven't been.
I listened to a sermon on selfishness by an English Pastor...
And my own selfish and self seeking desires stared me straight in the face.
I have been well for over a week now and the turning point came when I recognized how ugly I am.
Then for two days I wrestled with self loathing, and I sank right to the pit of despair.
I could see myself so clearly. My whinging and seeking for self first.
I have to write this, not so all of you will tell me I am not so bad.
But to admit I am a sinner, and no better than the very worst.
Please Lord, let me use the two ears I have, to listen more to the needs of others. Hold my mouth closed, so I speak less about my own needs and listen more to the needs of others.
Turn me from an ugly caterpillar into a butterfly for your use..

An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
