Man did I fail at this today. Got into an argument with someone. They are having trouble in their lives, and I've been encouraging turning to God. Their response was "he isn't going to pay my bills, he isn't going to give me money."
My response was - apparently you have all the answers and don't need God.
That's the old me coming through nice and loud, and I am not proud. I instantly responded with an apology and my sincere hope that they changed their mind.
I'm definitely down with the concept of glorifying God in everything I do. Boy is that a challenge. I wasn't looking to God when I was talking to them and it shows. Had I considered His will and tried to follow it I'm sure the conversation would've gone better, and possibly even helped them out. Now I've alienated this person for the moment, and possibly don't some harm where I could have done good.
I do keep creating posts that don't make it past the cutting room floor. I never got feedback from my questions before so have no idea how many people are actually reading this. I'm not giving up yet, but I must admit I am discouraged.
Thank you Lord - for a beautiful world, a wonderful job, great friends and family, your son, and your word.
