March 1, 2010, "Immaturity and Realzing it To Change"

lTriumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written By: Teresa Criswel

"A virtuous and worthy wife [earnest and strong in character] is a crowning joy to her husband, but she who makes him ashamed is as rottenness in his bones."
~ Proverbs 12:4 Amplified Bible ~


Lord, I am realizing how immature I truly am. The aching to know how much I haven't relied on You and seeing the effects of it is truly humbling.

My mind, my soul attempt to condemn me with great contractions of regret.

The waves of regret come and go and seem to come at a rythym. Lord, help me to get back to that place, under your merciful conviction so that with Your grace I may abound above the regret, and repent, turning and doing that new thing that is of You.

I am seeing where I truly need to grow up, and how I must absolutely, without a doubt depend on You for every growth spurt.

I have seen where I have this need to want to be accepted from all realms.

This sick desire to want approval; to please others so they don't get upset.

Lord, You have shown me whom I need to minister to the most; and that is my husband and children.

I need to stand on that which I know that I have been called to.

Lord, I don't want to only be a good wife because it makes me feel good to be one, I want to be the wife You have called me to be, because it is for Your glory and I am to be as a crown on my husband's head.

I don't want to just be a good mom as it benefits my ego, but I want to be a mom that benefits my children and blesses You as they are Your children.

Lord, thank You for the awakening. Some of the ways that have brought me to this place, were not in the best approach, yet no matter the approach, You so lovingly have revealed where I need to just stand and become accountable for that which I have done wrong. When I can do that, You will ALWAYS make new and make more than right.

Lord, I take these chains of bondage off and take hold of that which You have so triumphantly provided!

! thank You My Father God! Thank You! You are AWESOME and Your Majesty is to be greatly feared and in awe of!

  1. Amen to that! I was just thinking about this very same thing. To have and to hold my husband, and to give myself to his needs, rather than my own. This is the love of Christ!

  2. Oh how easily we fall into the world's ways, into our selfishness. Thank you for your openness and honesty. You have blessed me. I want to face myself straight to up front.
