The Blame Game

09/11/2012 - Author: Jennifer - 2 Comments

I am not athletic, but there is a game that I am good at — The Blame Game. Personal responsibility is not my strong suite. I am trying to do better. Really I am, but I still have a long way to go.

Who do I blame when things go wrong?

Who Why
Husband He doesn’t listen. He asks a question and I tell him the answer. If he doesn’t remember, then it isn’t my fault. Is he really paying attentino to me?
Son When he doesn’t listen or when he tests his limits. In a word–being 2 years old.
Parents I can’t help who I am. I was raised this way.
Strangers Slow drivers when I am running late or a new cashier to name a couple.
God When I don’t get my way

If I am disappointed in the answer/direction God has for me, I blame Him. There are times I really think my life would be easier if I was able to do things my way;  but I really believe I would miss out on any lessons that I have learned.  Maybe God had me go through something to help others. I don’t know.
I do know that it is easier to show sympathy and offer help to others who are going through what you have been through.
If we knew everything, then God wouldn’t be God. Isaiah 55:8 says “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.    “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
So there I have it—too much for me. 
So I need to stop being on defense, and join His team. Will you join us?
