Lord, change me!

Today at church, I prayed for the Lord to change me, mold me into what He wants me to be, more kind, more understanding, and more of Him to my small circle of co workers!
Lately at work, my job has started to stress me out! It shouldn't, but it does! I'm not sure how it snuck up on me, but I'm sick of it! It fatigues me! So, I started back on my stationary bike on Thursday and a quiet time with Him! It helps me a lot. Centers me, if you want it put in a non religious way! I also got this new book by Beni Johnson. It is a good read, nothing new in the realm of eating better and exercising, but a good reminder. She also talks about sleep. I don't sleep well, haven't for years, but I think its not been good! If I get 7 hours, I'm lucky! 5 or 6 is more like it, but by 7 p.m. I'm pooped as I have been up since 5 a.m. or maybe 6 a.m. Then, you know that vicious cycle, if I cat nap before bed, I don't sleep all night. Man, this sucks!!!
Plus within all this sleep mess, my job is stressful. A co-worker is at times hard to deal with, bossy and controlling! My daughter asked me just recently "why do you attract this kind of personality?" I don't know why, but it's tiring! My personality is I'm trying to get along with everyone difficult or not, but I pay for it! Its very wearing! Plus I can't just walk away from this person as I work daily with her in the same office. So, that's where I asked the Lord to change me, change my attitude, change how I react to her, change me to what will bring glory to His Kingdom! I have been thinking of looking for a new job, but would I find another person like her?? Please pray for me and pray for her! I'm sure I'm hard to deal with at times, it's not all her! Blessings!!!

  1. So good that you're taking steps forward! I pray you walk in the power of grace and hear wisdom for how to help your body, mind and spirit. Have you read Jen Hatmaker's new book, "For the Love"? She has a chapter on dealing with difficult people and setting boundaries. Think you'd really enjoy the whole thing. Love you! Chris
