Solitaire

“I’m in big trouble.”

I just spent a few hours playing Spider Solitaire. Why? I kept thinking, “I can solve this.” When I didn’t, I just tried another one.

It’s been one of those days. I had a ton of laundry, because I attended a funeral yesterday, and the phone rang all day long! I can go weeks without a phone call; but today, I had 4 calls in the morning and 4 more in the afternoon. These were not all short conversations either!

I knew this was not a good use of my time and I repented. I read the chapters a second time to find a verse to blog about. I was embarrassed when I found it!

Isaiah 5:21, “What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever.” New Living Translation

Ouch.

Dear Father God,

I am grateful that you forgive me when I repent. I’m sorry I wasted so much time. Help me not to yield to the temptation to play Spider until I win again.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
