Blame it on the ______________________

original post date: 3/12/10

Is 63:17 O, Lord, why has thou made us to err from thy ways and hardened your heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.

The blame game. Even the chosen people of God played it. Blaming God for their disobedience. People often assuage their guilt about a given situation by displacing responsibility for their actions. "It ain't my fault" or "Blame it on the alcohol" or "Blame it on the rain" all songs about something that someone did that they realize they should not have done but instead of owning the responsibility for their actions, they looked for some object outside of themselves to place blame. The likelihood of repeating an error that one has made and not accepted responsibility for the action are far greater than when we 'own up' to what we did and learn from it.

Let responsibility and accountability start today.

Congratulation's time:

Tish C. - Way to get started sista!! I'm so glad you decided to go on this journey with us!

Lord, I acknowledge my weakness and my shortfalls. I bring them before You and present them to Your altar. In the humility of my brokenness, I beg You to keep me from repeating those same mistakes. I realize that apart from You I can do nothing, I am nothing. But in You, I can do the impossible. Thank you for your forgiveness. Help me to forgive myself. I love you Lord, with all my heart. In Jesus name. Amen.
