Knock, Knock?

Rod Shimabukuro

Scripture
"Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!" (James 5:9)
Observation
I can see the Lord, peering in on my inner conversations when I'm disgruntled and grumbling in my heart. Knock, knock...My Judge is standing within my heart, listening in as I talk to myself, all day long.

It's even more dangerous and deadly when this attitude escapes my heart to my words, countenance body language. Yes..have you ever been able to detect if someone is disgruntled by their body language and expressions?

I would hate to see pictures, let alone videos of myself when I'm in a bad, grumbling mood. An My Judge sees it all! I'm so sorry Lord!!
Application
My application is my conversation with You...
To realize again, that You are so near Lord, listening in, noticing my every thought hurts me...because I know it hurts You!

I hear the Lord saying
Identify the root of your inner murmuring. What is it that is irking you?
Change your heart and address the situation. You will be frustrated if you don't take care of the issue.
Do you want to be judged like you are judging others? I thought so!
Prayer
Thanks Holy Spirit...You are so great about convicting my soul, and pruning me back to be more like You. Thanks for the love You share with me, filling me with passion to love You and people.
