Psalm 69:6 NAS
May those who wait for Thee not be ashamed through me, O Lord God of hosts: May those who seek Thee not be dishonored through me, O God of Israel.

As a writer I tell other writers to show me what they are wanting to say, not tell me. It makes a better story to show someone, draw a picture, a scene, etc, rather than tell them what is going on. Sometimes I have to be reminded of that too.

As a Christian I also need to be aware that there are others watching how I live my life. God expects me to live as Christ lived his life.

I must guard my tongue against petty gossip and running down another person to make myself look better. As Jesus said I will come into temptation, the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. I can only be an example by reading God's word every day and asking for His help.

I must guard my eyes against all idols and anything that is detestable in God's sight. I must restrain my feet from every evil way so that I may keep God's word.

I must use my hands to help others whether in crisis or not. To give a hug when needed or a pat on the back for a job well done. I must use my ears to listen to the pain and hurt of others.

And last, but not least, my heart needs to be like the heart of Jesus Christ. Love like He loves. Forgive like He does. Through Him all things are possible. You may not feel like you can do these things but when you ask Him for His help He is there. You can do all things through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Dear Father in Heaven please hear my prayer and give me a heart for others so that I may love like You. Amen.
