Honestly, Self-Accountability Time and a Prayer

Hi All.  I've been lazy (you should see my laundry).  I have been pushing against financial anxiety that is creeping around (a bad habit of mine).  My "To Do List" of all things I've been procrastinating on keeps growing.  I've been unmotivated and the inconsistent weather doesn't help.

I know why I've been in this funk.  I know exactly why.

I've been slacking and inconsistent with my alone time with God.  Partly because I'm trudging through the book of Exodus, but mostly because I have allowed myself to fall into distraction and a lack of self-discipline.

But I'm back.  Time to buck up.  Through this funk I have maintained prayer and God ALWAYS provides.


Good Morning God.  Today I feel my motivation returning and I thank you for changing my attitude.  I pray for you to continue to work on me, my attitude, so that I will do your will with a joyful heart.  I do feel the weeds of financial anxiety creeping up again.  I pray.

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7, New International Version, ©2011)

I thank you, Lord,  with an overwhelmingly joyful heart for Makoa.  I pray, Lord, for your continued guidance so that I may be your light, so I may inspire others through my example, as imperfect as it may be, to seek you.  I pray these things in Jesus' name.  Amen.

Ok.  Thanks for listening.  Thanks for praying with me.  Now, time to face that LAUNDRY :)
