God, I appreciate Your patience

Psalm 69:34 All God’s creation: join together in His praise! All heaven, all earth, all seas, all creatures of the ocean deep! 

Early this morning as I was lamenting the thorns in my life, it occurred to me that I should praise God for His overwhelming goodness to me and for His infinite patience as I dance my sin songs. 

Once my mindset changed, I could be somewhat more objective and take responsibility for the things I can change. 

 If those issues came to my mind perhaps it was time to check my heart and soul and to repent and confess. 

Most of us know what we do wrong, but we rationalize it and almost figure out a way to ignore sin, or to blame others or to let it sit in the recesses of our minds and hearts, which ultimately causes great mental anguish. 

Why do you think so many sit on psychiatric couches or indulge in things that make them more miserable? 

It's not easy to write this because I struggle. But the Holy Spirit will not ease up when we walk crooked. 

A believer who belongs to God cannot get away from His reach, but we need to understand this and not become immune to His promptings. 

Romans 2:4 Living Bible Don’t you realize how patient he is being with you? Or don’t you care? Can’t you see that he has been waiting all this time without punishing you, to give you time to turn from your sin? His kindness is meant to lead you to repentance.

Don't risk becoming carnal by listening to your conscience. 

Sometimes there isn't an easy solution to the things we confess, but repentance and confession before Almighty God helps us endure the consequences or endure His final wrath. It's our choice. 

Romans 2:5 But no, you won’t listen; and so you are saving up terrible punishment for yourselves because of your stubbornness in refusing to turn from your sin; for there is going to come a day of wrath when God will be the just Judge of all the world.

If we believe that God is good, then we need to clear our souls before Him.
