I feel like I’m full of strife in my heart. I have been trying to read the Word daily so as to grow closer to God yet it’s like I just gloss over it, just reading, not understanding. More like hearing but not listening. I also have bitterness and resentment in my heart at times, although I don’t know about what. I’m good natured but I can at times be very evil, in thought and deed. I seek to change my ways. It’s my fervent prayer but I feel like God sometimes doesn’t hear me because I sin so easily, even after asking for forgiveness. I wish to be a different person, to give my life to Christ but the mind wins when I think of what I will be giving up and leaving behind. I need God’s wisdom, understanding, peace and happiness and this I know I can ONLY find in His word but I find it hard to internalize. Please remember me in your prayers. I didn’t mean to write this long a request. Thank you.
