Remind Me To Be Humble

Dear God,

Every time I try to be humble, my pride gets in the way.  I begin to think more highly of myself than I should.  And it's even harder to become humble about my children!  I love them very much that I want to brag about them all the time.

Lord, I need to encourage my DS and DD but not to be boastful, so I won't lead them to be prideful.  Finding the middle ground is difficult, but I know You will be faithful and steadfast to remind me when I get off the course.  (And I need that reminder all the time!)

I have to thank You, Lord,  for the times that I am reminded and humbled.  Because You are always there to listen, forgive, and most of all, to restore and heal.  Please help me to have a repentant heart, and to be willing to be brought down on my knees.  Please heal me, Lord.

...if my people, who are called by my name,
will humble themselves and pray
and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven,
and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
