The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
-Psalms 23:1-6

I’m guilty of not thanking Him enough in the past months. I can’t even remember the last time I went to church anymore despite my mom going weekly. Right now, I have a bad mix of guilt and shame and I’m really embarrassed that I’m getting too much blessings and grace.


A few times I was able to allot proper devotion time. But after that, I failed again completely. But God never failed to answer my questions, guide me, protect me, and lead me to the right path along with everyone who I love.

Take delight in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

-Psalms 37:4

Earlier today (this prompt is a day late, even that I can’t allot proper time it’s embarrassing), I was kind of forced to go to church. Not dragged to church, but the feeling was the same because I wasn’t motivated enough (bed was so inviting). I don’t have enough reasons to go. Not like we need any actual reasons to, but I was set not to go beforehand. I feel bad about it, but not motivated enough to tell myself that next time, I should be willing to. And just like one of my most favorite songs by Jesus Culture:

He deserves a lot more praise and worship and time than I can give. And I really need a good bump in a head and some proper discipline so I can get myself back to the right track.

So Lord, thank you, for not forgetting about your child that failed you in a lot more ways and a lot more times than any person can actually forgive.
