I am at our denominations annual meetings Monday through Wednesday this week with lots of pastor friends to talk to and hang out with. I have to be extra careful in these kinds of settings that I don’t sin with my mouth as I would attempt to project an image of a super successful pastor. When I choose to relax and not get caught up in talking ministry I can do good, but occasionally I take the bait of the enemy and say some really stupid thing in an attempt to be cool, and I regret it so much as I recall for hours and even days how dumb I was. Well, I in just 10 seconds of conversation spoke badly of another pastor, and I wish that I could reel it in, but I can’t. I am hoping that the dumb thing I said doesn’t get back to the person I slandered. Why do I do that? I know better and I always am so angry at myself after I say something as stupid as I did tonight. Well, I am confessing my sin, in fact I have confessed it about a hundred times in the last hour, and I am praying that God gives me strength not to do that any more. ” Oh, Lord, please forgive me, and cleanse me, and wash me from my sin, and please help me never to do that again, please Lord, I desperately want to please You, and I messed up royal tonight, apart from You I will mess up my life and everybody else’s around me, please help me and strengthen me, I want so much to please you”.
