Unsloppy


I got sloppy

or maybe

cocky is the better word.

I was forgetting

GOD.

HE

told me to

"not let any unwholesome talk come out of my mouth" (Ephesians 4:29)

& I did.

HE

told me to

"cast all my cares" (I Peter 5:7)

& instead I held on tightly.

HE

told me to be

"quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry" (James 1:19)

& the next thing I knew my cell phone "dropped" & it shattered.

Hmm.

GOD

tells me a lot~

always reminding me which way to go,

& I will deliberately go the other way.

I got sloppy

&

with sloppiness

came

anger, anxiety & strife.

I got sloppy

&

sloppy won.

I was dragging

JESUS

around instead of walking with

HIM.

I was complaining to

GOD

instead of talking to

HIM.

I was putting expectations on others

when

GOD

is my hope.

I got sloppy~

but

GOD IS

"gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love" (Psalm 145:8)~

therefore

HE

wants to be the One who

I give all my

attention

so

HE

can take all my junk

that makes me get sloppy

&

clothe me with

"compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience" (Colossians 3:12).

I got sloppy,

but not too sloppy

for

GOD~

"though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with HIS hand" (Psalm 37:24).

Are you getting sloppy?
