Search My Heart, Lord

Seriously! The milk is left out of the refrigerator. An empty jug is left in fridge. Dishes are on counter next to sink. Laundry is thrown next to basket. Beds are unmade with clothes under them. Toilet paper roll is empty on the holder. Dishes are in the living room. Trash is flowing out of the trash can. Toys are all over the floor. Hats and miscellaneous things are here and there….everywhere!

“Mom! I can’t find…”

“Its behind the…or in the…”

Mom’s are supposed to know where everything is (usually in plain site or where they last dropped it). “Mom, I got to go…that’s not on the calendar and it starts in 5 minutes.”

Don’t they realize if they just put it away where they got it from they will know where it is the next time? Do I have to do everything around here? I sometimes feel like a broken record.

Or maybe thoughts of…

Move, come on, that light changed 2 minutes ago.

Get out of the way! Geez, I only have 2 items, they could have let me go first.

Any of these thoughts ever rolled off your tongue or through your mind?

What gets under your skin or irritates you? 

If these things bother or irritate you as they have me, it boils down to a heart issue of selfishness and pride.

God’s Word tells us to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”
(2 cor. 10:5). “Do everything without complaining or arguing” (Phil. 2:14). “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45
).  
1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
