I want to praise you for Your new mercies extended to me every day, for the grace and forgiveness of my personal sins. Help me to grow in the daily practice of Your presence, Your omni-presence, to know and realize the fact that You are constantly looking, not over my shoulder, but through my eyes, seeing exactly what I see, not only what ever happens across my field of view, but the things I go looking for.
Show me how to own up to, and then give this adulterous, idolotrous sin to you, and then leave it. This is definitely my thorn in the flesh. Help me to lean on Your grace, knowing it to be sufficient for me. For the times I'm in public, it's easier somehow to pracitce the "eye-bounce," but it's so hard when I'm by myself to defer to Your Spirit, and pray for deliverence at the point of decision. I can't even say that I'm tempted, I just go looking.
I love You, LORD, help me to love you more.
Now, on to other pressing matters. Concerning my Mom. First of all, show her that You love her. Give her something to let her know that You are watching over her. Give her relief from this malady, and bring her home to family and friends.
