|do you see the look on this dogs face??? she is clearly guilty and knows exactly what i'm |
my point in all this is that recently, as i have had daily interactions with my dogs, i have imagined myself in their position...and God in mine. i'm completely aware of my tendency toward delayed obedience. i don't desire to disobey. and yet, as my spirit is willing...my flesh is weak. (Matthew 26:41) i wonder, sometimes, at Gods mercy and grace. is he as irritated with me as i am with my dogs? silly, in a sense, i realize. and yet, i see myself in them...ridiculous as that sounds! it makes me think... what keeps me from immediate obedience? why take advantage of the kindness and patience of my savior? i don't like that about me. Psalm 51 is written on my heart. i want it to be said of me... a clean heart, a loyal spirit, a willingness to obey.
