Delayed Obedience is not obedience.
A good and very wise friend of mine whose children are all grown up reminded me of this the other day. It is so nice to be given advice without being made to feel beaten up. This is an art, I wish to learn. Lord, please teach me this...... it is your way... oh Lord teach me your ways.
"Exodus 33:13If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.""
