Have you ever heard Malachi 3:3 preached? In Master’s we would talk about this all the time, that God would put you on the fire sometimes and in that way allow the filthy stuff to surface so that He could strip it away, thereby purifying you. Oh my gosh. I have been put on the fire. Earlier this week, I talked about not losing well. Today, well… let’s just say that some stuff rose to the surface.

Football was not good. I totally lost it. I acted like a complete ass. It was bad. On my stewing drive home after I stormed off the field, I looked in the rear view and said to myself, “you have a problem.”

This week, I need to deal with some internal issues. I need to forgive some people whom I haven’t forgiven. I need to get quiet and let God deal with some heart issues that are causing me problems. I have some problems seeing myself as valuable when I don’t succeed. I have major problems seeing myself for anything other than what I do for people. I need this to go away. I need to see myself through God’s eyes and through His word.

Lord, help me.

I don’t like it… I need to get better at it. It is a character flaw of mine. I like winning and I hate losing. Period. This is my losing face… [not a good one] How do I get better?
