Luke 6:36- You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.

This was the scripture for the Praying Wife that was sent today. I will be completely honest. Some days I lack the compassion that my husband needs. I lack the compassion that my children need. Some days I am just so tired and so overwhelmed I just don’t have the energy to do anything other than just survive. I know this isn’t the way that the Lord wants me to be. I pray for energy, patience, compassion to my family, my friends, my children and to my husband.  But how can I give compassion to someone who doesn’t show it to me? I know I should be like Jesus and love everyone, but I am only human and sometimes its hard to overlook how hurt I feel towards someone to give them the love that they need. This is something that I do need to work on. 
I am really looking forward to this bible study. I want to be the best wife possible. I want to be everything that my husband needs so that he wont feel the need to look elsewhere. I want to make my Father proud of the woman I am… the woman he created.

Lately I have felt so far away from God. I still pray. I still believe… I just don’t feel the closeness like I used. I used to crave going to church on Sundays. I used to crave my morning time with God. And lately, I just have no motivation. I hate it. I am so worn out. I need to be reenergized but I don’t know how exactly to do that. I want to shine with Jesus’ love. I want people to look at me and think “wow, she is so in love with Jesus”.  I need to get back into doing the things I used to, the things that made me so happy.
