Getting older…don’t know about wiser

In a week I’ll be another year older.  I think I’m learning from my mistakes and the mistakes of others…or am I??  Sometimes I see myself doing the same thing I’ve always done even though the end result is not what I want or need, yet I do it anyway.  You would think I’d be able to see this and stop before it’s too late, but I don’t until the damage is done.  Will I ever stop this repeating pattern??  Only God knows…one of these days maybe I’ll stop just getting older and get wiser too.  One of these days I’ll remember to think before I act, or even better, pray before I act…Lord, please help me stop repeating the same mistakes I’ve made time and time again.  Help me to see myself as YOU see me and not as the world sees me.  Help me to become the person YOU want me to be.  In the name of Jesus, Amen.
