The Words of My Mouth

May I always remember that today becomes tomorrow and that my present becomes my past. 

Each moment, I am charting a legacy for my children—what do I want them to remember? What do I want them to learn and to model—impatience? Selfishness? Self-centeredness? Self-pity?

Or do I want them to be patient and kind and loving and respectful, to live with a servant's heart?

The latter, of course, is my desire.

But do I live with that goal in mind? It is so easy, when I am tired, for my heart to turn inward. (And I am tired a lot.)

Only when I look up, when I keep my perspective in the right place, will my attitude and actions line up properly with the Word of God.

Help me, Father! Keep me from willful sins—may they not rule over me.

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer," (Psalm 19:14 NASB).
