Danger...


This was actually posted somewhere as a joke, but really depending on the day, I should probably have this on my back, in order to warn people to stay out of the direct fire. That's not something I'm proud of...really quite taken aback and embarrassed by it. I guess that's why I'm still classified a huge work in progress and am grateful for the eternal love and grace of a loving heavenly Father. Thank goodness I can come to the foot of the cross daily, admit my short-comings and start afresh, knowing He's right there with me through it all.



"But the fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself. There is no law against things of that kind. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed their sinful nature to his cross. They don't want what their sinful nature loves and longs for. Since we live by the Spirit, let us march in step with the Spirit. Let us not become proud. Let us not make each other angry. Let us not want what belongs to others."
~ Galations 5:22-26

Being aware of your short-comings and admitting them, is the first step to being able to change them! And you are aware, which is very admirable, dear sister :-)
I could use a sign like that. Not just to warn people around me, but as a warning to myself that it's time to sit down and judge and examine myself and go in prayer for an attitude-change!

God's Grace.

I'm also a gigantic work in progress.
We need to trust God.
