But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath. For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
So much I want to say about these verses right here! I am so thankful that my God is full of compassion! I need his grace EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Even now when I look at my prayer journals (when I kept them on and off) I seem to still be praying the same things, like I haven't learned it yet! But still he forgives me and turns his anger away!
On that note, I want to have this same compassion for my kids!! Yesterday was not so good. I did not turn my anger away! I exploded at my kids, threw toys around and had a little hissy fit!! I only have them for a little time... I want them to remember me as being full of compassion! ... anybody got some hints on what "works for them"?
