Disciplines of a Godly Woman

This month's chapter was on the discipline of propriety. I read the chapter a little here & there throughout the month, God continuing to lay on my heart specifically my attitude toward my children, which can often be lacking in patience, resulting in harsh words. I have known this is wrong, and pray to change, but have struggled often, having to ask the forgiveness of my children and my merciful Abba Father.
Today I was directed through the Bible Study to this passage: (Now keep in mind that I memorized the verses in bold when I was in high school, but reading them in context today just majorly spoke to my heart!)

Psalm 119:9-16 

 9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
       By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
       do not let me stray from your commands.

 11 I have hidden your word in my heart
       that I might not sin against you.

 12 Praise be to you, O LORD;
       teach me your decrees.

 13 With my lips I recount
       all the laws that come from your mouth.

 14 I rejoice in following your statutes
       as one rejoices in great riches.

 15 I meditate on your precepts
       and consider your ways.

 16 I delight in your decrees;
       I will not neglect your word.
Thank you, Lord, for reminding me that it's Your Word that washes me. I want my spiritual apparel to reflect my life as a believer. I want to work on having more patience in my heart and gentleness in my words. Barbara encouraged us to pray Psalm 19:14, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer." This is my next memory verse. Then I will seek out verses that speak specifically to the issues that I'm dealing with and memorize them, too. It's His Word in my heart that is going to change me.
