Yes, I am pretentious. I do not do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.
Jesus said, on commenting on the behaviour of the Pharisees, ‘they for a pretence make long prayers, and for this they shall obtain a greater condemnation.’ Even when I am sick, I’m not humbled.
I wish I wasn’t a burden on society. I wish I could work, so I could pay taxes back to the government for its great generosity towards me. But all I can do is pray.
I am consuming resources, and yet God gives more grace and love, through the love of family and friends. I wish I could bless my enemies as well!
I am sick now. I’ve had a sore throat for roughly 3 days, now I have to blow my nose often.
I ask God to be merciful to me, and indeed He is, He gives sickness in order to cure me of my pride. And I never repent! Lord, help me!
I would ask to be sick more often, so I would run into the Lord’s arms and find His forgiveness!

Love this one!
It reminds of Apostle Paul. When we weak we are strong in Christ.
Thank you for being honest. That’s all we can do as broken and flawed creatures and lean on Christ and His absolute truth.
