i was listening to a podcast the other day when something startled me…. the teacher said (and I am paraphrasing) : if we neglect to acknowledge that we are tempted everyday, then we have been deceived. For a moment I thought “I wasn’t tempted today….” then I caught my self. I was caught up in my tasks more than the people around me, I thought things that I shouldn’t have, I was selfish, I was __________ – I’m not tearing myself down, I’m just being honest. My prayer: Lord, keep me sharp to the enemy’s work, keep my eyes open to the temptations that I am faced with and give me strength battle when it is so easy to wave my white flag.
