Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

thinking about the lessons

On Monday, I struggled, tripped myself, and fell flat on my face.

Today (Thursday), I'm looking back with gratitude, not because of me, I'm sorry for my stumble, but greatful for Him who forgives and gives wisdom.

Gratitude of a Lord and Savior who forgives.

I prayed that God would keep His hand over my mouth, and He did, until I wrestled through and had word vomit.

And even though I can't take it back, I could say I was sorry, and I did. Learning to forgive myself and others. A little more like Jesus because of the incident.

Pursuing Him, leaning on Him, praying to Him, talking to Him, living for Him, listening to Him, praising Him.

Maybe I needed to stumble to look up, and remember that He is.

Isa 9:6-7
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, [a] Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.
