I have been looking for a Christian based weekly meme for a while. If you know of others PLEASE comment below about them! If you want to join in check it out at Internet Cafe Devotions. This week's question is as follows:
How would my life look if I no longer struggled with taking responsibility for my actions? What if I was completely free from blaming others for my actions through Christ’s power…
I am going to start by saying that I am terrible at blaming people for my mistakes. TERRIBLE! I blamed the pregnancy for not disciplining and teaching my daughter. I blame my husband for me not having dinner done on time. In fact I have been known to blame my parents for not teaching me not to blame people for my actions!
Now it I might be ok with this but for the fact that under the heat of the moment I spout my mouth off and make a scene. I have been working on this for quite some time (with Christ's help) and have actually come a long way. Sadly I still have a LONG way to go!
If I no longer struggled with this problem I would have a much better marriage and be a better mother. Sure we would still argue but blaming people drives a wedge between people while other forms of disagreements can actually bring people together (that is as long as you handle them properly).
