ometimes, I'll learn a lesson, have a "random" epiphany, give someone great advice or write an entire blog about how I have a certain belief yet I won't apply any of those ideas to my own life.
Its like I fully understand what I need to do in a certain situation. I see the pros and the cons clearly. I know exactly what the consequences will be if I decide to go against my better judgement yet, for some reason, I do it anyway.
It's like what Paul was saying in Romans 7:15
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do."
Its like I know better yet for some reason when the situation actually presents itself all of my logical thinking and good intentions go out the window and I'm led by an entirely different force within myself. I'm not even sure what it is.
It frustrates me. I don't want to appear to be a hypocrite or anything but i don't even listen to half the things I say. Hopefully this year I can change that.Can anyone relate? Do you sometimes forget to practice what you preach? When was a time you gave someone great advice but didn't apply it to your own life?
