Patient God Almighty, should you be waiting for me to broach this subject, here I am, and here I go: I’m sick and tired of complaining and looking on the negative side. Since I believe in the necessity for eradicating bad habits/thought patterns by replacing them with good ones, please fill me with your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control. I no longer wish to inadvertently tear down your kingdom. What was I ever thinking? Amen.
