When I am tempted and give in, it is my fault although it pains me to admit it. There shouldn't be excuses but I often times find myself coming up with them. God wants me to take responsibility for my actions and admit my wrongs. Both parties are to blame. I should be asking, "Why am I blaming someone else?" Is it because I am ashamed? Is it because I feel guilty? Yes and yes. Blaming someone doesn't erase the fact that I did or said something. In a way it is a quick means of temporary relief but the ultimate relief comes when I confess my sins to God and admit my wrong doings.
Please forgive for blaming others. It is often times hard for me to admit that I am in the wrong. Someone is not always out to get me but at the time I convince myself that this is true. Keep me strong Lord and when the time comes, and I know it will, instill in me the responsibility of owning up to my wrongdoings. Lord please continue to work through me and help me grow in my faith. I love you so much. The double rainbow you presented me with today was an excellent reminder that I am not alone. Your glory is everlasting.
