Constant Kindness

http://odb.org/2016/12/06/constant-kindness/

This was one of my evening devotionals from Our Daily Bread. It really spoke to me or perhaps it was another Jesus nudge. Psalm 141:2-4 are verses that have been on my mind and heart lately. Actually, it’s more what they represent. Asking God to watch and guard my heart and my lips and keep me from doing evil.

These things I have found that I struggle with alot over the past few months. My depression and anxiety at times can be so bad that I snap or become cross, cranky for those not from the old school era. I almost see and hear myself getting frustrated with others over little things when I’m in a rush. When I’m feeling overwhelmed. When around too many people. Around unsafe and bad drivers. Around rude and abnoxious people, etc… Then when I am relaxed or whatever, I feel ashamed of how I acted and behaved. Feel as if I am beyond hope of ever being who God created me to be. 

Thank you for letting me share this devotional, the verses and my confession.

God bless.

About jazzyjenness

I'm the mother of three girls, a Grammy to two little girls, a girlfriend and we have a cat with many nick names, depending on his mood and activity, or lack thereof. I've been writing since I was about 8 or 9, and it is something that I love to do. When we read books, we do it for entertainment, escape, and education; the three E's. These are also the reasons why I write, to entertain, educate and escape. My desire is not just to do what I love, but I want to give hope and inspiration to others through my stories. Currently, I am working on obtaining my Master's degree in Creative Writing and hope to also become an instructor at my school one day and teach Fiction Workshop.

One Response to Constant Kindness

  1. Wow, I could have written a similar post myself. My anxiety, depression, introversion, etc. can get in the way of me interacting with others in a way that is more true to myself and kind to others. It’s hard. I’ve become a bit better with it over the past 2-3 years but it’s still difficult sometimes!
