Aw, I’ve done it again. I put something small in my pocket when I should have put it where it belongs and now I can’t find it. I even remember thinking to myself, “don’t do this. It’s not a good idea.”
Maybe being frustrated with myself is good for me. It will remind me to do things right the first time and not to hurry. I just pray I can find it, but in the meantime I am practicing not fretting.
This incident also bring to mind the fact that I tend to put off doing the things for myself that I know I ouight to do, like daily exercise. I was thinking about this while I reading my devotions this morning. I realized that I save a little time to spend with Jesus every day and no time for myself. I need to make the time I spend with God the most important time every day and I need to carve out a little time for myself as well. I know this is true. My life would be a lot better if I did this.
How can I make myself do it? For me, I think it is like mind over matter. I can do most anything I make up my mind to do. If it is really important I will find a way to do it. I think this is why I don’t tend to procrastinate over school work and things like that. But there is also accountability in those situations. I don’t have anyone holding me accountable over my time with God and time for myself. I will just have to make myself accountable.
Here’s to accountability and to doing things right.
Father, help me be accountable and to keep my commitment to time with you. Amen.
