This is from Facebook. It is very interesting and precise in what should be done before going to bed at night. Being happy, about things that were done correctly during the day, is easy. However letting go of the things that were not done correctly is not so easy. We humans tend to take pleasure in putting our self down. We are so afraid of boasting too much that we don’t give our self very much credit for things that were almost correct.
So far as I’m concerned, if I have done something almost correctly, then I know that if I work a bit harder, possibly I will do the thing totally correct. But either way, I thank God for the things He has done for me, whether they were good or not so good. We are supposed to thank Him for both. That part of praying has been a hard one for me to do. But I tell God that too. I tell Him that it doesn’t make sense to thank Him for bad stuff, but that since the Bible says to thank Him for it I’m going to thank him for it. And then I thank Him for the good things too.
After I have thanked God for the bad and the good, then I ask Him for the things I would like for Him to do or make better. I ask this, but I always say, “if it be Your will, because if it’s not Your will, whatever I’m asking for won’t be good, or go correctly.”
