    Hey Ya'll, I was just curious to know what some you have problems with in your Christian lives.
    I know my biggest problem is my temper and stouborness. {UGHH!!!} Every mornin' I pray for patience, so that when someone is on my last nerve, i don't lose my temper with them. {I have a big mouth and sometimes don't know when to be quiet! and I usualy say what's on my mind wheither or not i should!}
    I really have to watch what i say,because the people i see everyday know I am saved and expect me to be a good example of Christ {witch they should} and sometimes it's hard for me because of my slow to speak/slow to wraith neglect.
    I was just wonderin' if anyone else has the same problem or anything else they struggle with.
    thanks for taking time to read this,

    I also have a problem with keeping my mouth shut. I have 11 brothers and sisters, and in a household like that, you have to speak up to be heard at all! :D

    That's what I struggle with the most, keeping my mouth shut.. today is the last day of a 3 day suspension from school for that problem!

    You'd think I'd learn... ;)

    my greatest struggle is in getting satisfied with what i have, as against getting envious with what other people have that i do not. i find it hard to accept myself with dignity when the people around me are all better off, and are so happy enjoying what they have that i do not.

    i guess it is pride, coz it's really the glory that i think i receive from others and from myself that makes me satisfied when having things that gets me "in" with society.
    quite a social climber, huh.

    I have a problem with my temper & my mouth. Lately though not so bad, you see... I am going blind. Because of this my temper hasn't been all that bad. :cool:
