The prompt today is the word ; AFTER.
Lots of things pop into my head with the word "after" but then what to write on.
I consider things like.... how I feel after I sell a rabbit (happy, pleased), how I feel after my son has learned a difficult concept (woot woot!!!), and how I feel when I think in ways I aught not (downcast at tmes, other times...justified).
That whole occasionally Justified feeling gets to me though...you know when someone cuts you off in traffic and you call them a jerk without even thinking about it....when perhaps they really aren't a jerk and are just someone not paying adequate attention and they made an error which, disconcerting at times, and potentially dangerous....wasn't really dangerous as you are okay enough to call them a jerk and then realize that wasn't the response God would have wanted from you. People are still people even if they make errors and would I want God calling me a jerk? (not really just so you know). People are still made in the image of God even if they don't always act like it.
So yeah....the feeling justified when I think or do something I aught not do.... that gets to me.
This is the thing I struggle with....that inborn selfishness of mine that so often causes me to think in ways I aught not. I am not more important in God's eyes then the rest of the human population....that he created to glorify himself.
So I aught not think so selfishly.
Go thing he helps me realize that eh? Helps me to change.
Praise be to HIM!
