Not So Perfect Me…

Lord, today I know that I may be far from perfect. But I pray for your direction. That “your still small voice” will stop me, and show me “your way” not mine. That I will be strong enough, courageous enough, humble enough to choose the things you speak to my heart.

It’s so not easy, Lord. When you lead me to “bite my tongue”, or “change my thoughts from negative to positive”. I need you. I need you to tell me over and over.

Thank you for not giving up on me. For loving me, faults and all. For having a ‘perfect plan’ for no-so-perfect me. I cling to the truth that even when I try and fail, you can bring blessing out of it.

Father, I want to be all that you created me for. Guide me today, I pray.

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
