Hahaha! HalleluYah! It just came to me. What? This thing I been observing with my posting. I get lots of likes? Up goes my elation! I get no likes? Down goes my deflation!
O my Father—O Father of mine? Honest to goodness! What is the matter with me? Why am concerned with the likes or lack of them? Because I am looking for a change in others that only You can effect or bring about. There is no way we can change ourselves. Yes, there is a multitude of systems & practices to give us a sense of change but! The reality of the matter is, the change is only carnal & temporal.
Even so, O my Father—O Father of mine? Though I know this matter, I cannot help but to attempt to harp people with the hammer of needing change. You are effecting the needed change in each of Your children one by one in the same manner as You have done with me. It is not necessary for me to get elated or deflated because things don’t look the way I would like them to look. Deliver me my Father, O my Father—O Father of mine? Only You can deliver me from my own quirks & quarks.
I have no one but You. What is the sense of my appeal to anyone to help me to control my mind or my tongue? Only You have the power to do so. I refuse to device all kinds of method to improve my behavior. Ah! What is written about the tongue and wisdom from above? Exactly, You alone can give life within my heart to the following quote. In truth, You have empowered me with Your wisdom—the power of love from on high. No need to worry about all my deficiencies. Allow me to quote the following describing two natures within us.
For we all often stumble and fall and offend in many things. And if anyone does not offend in speech [never says the wrong things], he is a fully developed character and a perfect man, able to control his whole body and to curb his entire nature.
If we set bits in the horses’ mouths to make them obey us, we can turn their whole bodies about. Likewise, look at the ships: though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines.
