Bring It Into Play
Guard your heart.
Do you ever have days where everything irritates you? The smallest thing makes you want to tell someone off?
On those days, pray. Ask God to help you understand what is going on in your heart. Let the Holy Spirit show you what is making you overflow with irritability and anger.
Then ask Him to bust it up. To help you stop spewing or wanting to spew on other people.
Take time to sit and be still. Ask the light to penetrate your heart. You will be amazed at how much it helps!
Hey God. Sometimes it is easy for me to see the areas that other people need to work on. I focus on their failings. But I fail to recognize my own heart issues. I need to stop being critical. Help me to pray when harsh things start coming to mind or out of my mouth. Holy Spirit, have your way in me. Use your light to convict me and to clean me up. I want to know you more. Jesus I want to be like you. It's in your name I pray. Amen.
