Lord, so often I quit before the job is done, when it stops being fun. It is much easier for me to start something than to see it to its finish. I justify the progress I have made is simply "good enough."
As you know, God, my lazy approach even applies to the project of "building" my daughter into a well-balanced woman. Far too often, I find myself very impatient with her. Sometimes I feel like a failure, and I just want to quit.
But I confess these dark and innermost feelings so that I may ask for Your help to persevere. Please help me a loving, gracious, enduring and patient dad.
