Yesterday I thought I was doing well in prayer - keeping my focus on God, keeping out stray thoughts, and generally just getting closer to Him. In fact, I was quite pleased with myself for it.
“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)
Today was a different day...stray thoughts about mundane things everywhere, and when I did manage to get them (briefly) under control, insights into other things came back popping into my head that lead me onto continually thinking about them - things that at any other time would have been welcome and of great value, but during prayer, just seemed to be yet another distraction from Him, to whom I would draw nearer.
Lesson learned (I hope), and all I can say is “have mercy on me, a sinner”.

I just wanted to share something my fiance' came up with. She is a jewelry designer and has a shop with her daughter. They asked if I had an outlet for some of their items and I told them I would share it with everyone here at CF. So I started them an Etsy Shop account to showcase what they have done. And this is the first items! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much! - Rex
