6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
I will admit this that I am not always very confident that God is doing a good work in me. I was talking with a friend today that I sometimes get fixated on tangential issues. Our Pastor preached this Sunday on the power of the tongue, and I confessed to her that I am not always calm, kind, and gentle with my children. She reminded me that this of course would be an area I need to work on, but I accomplish nothing by feeling down about it. I need to pray about it, and make a plan to be more mindful about speaking words of life, and carry out that plan. Having a pity party because I have areas of my life that I need to experience growth in does not actually help me grow. Trusting in God that He has began a good work in me, and partnering in that work, by filling myself with the Word and prayer are the first steps toward growth. So, what do you need to trust that He is working on in you, today?
