Who I want to be

"Whoever speaks is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God;
whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies;
so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ,
to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever.
1 Peter 4:11

I have a confession to make. I have been struggling with a bad attitude quite a bit this past week. A bad attitude that starts inside of me but ends up coming out in the ways that I interact with others. This is not good! That is not the person that I want to be and more importantly it is not how God wants me to be.

 On Wednesday we were studying 1 Peter 4 in class at church and when I read this verse I realized that this is one that I really need to have become a part of me. I want to speak only what God wants me to say and words that He would say. I want to serve willingly and lovingly and realize that I can only do that because God gives me the strength. I really want to bring glory to God!

I am working on memorizing this verse but I want to do a lot more than getting it in my head, I want it to go into my heart and be a part of me!
I couldn't get this picture to upload the other day so I decided to add it today. I had such fun watching everybody flying kites, there is just something so very fun about it! I had a lot of chuckles watching Megan especially as she would run this way and that with no thought to the wind and amazingly her kite just stayed up most of the time anyway.
