Having an Atttitude that brings Glory to the Lord

Do you ever feel like this?

There are times as a Wife, Mother, homeschool teacher, housekeeper, chief cook, ref, coach, maid, etc. that I feel like this.

I have had to take a few min. away in the middle of the day to pray, asking the Lord to give me an attitude that would bring Glory to Him as well as use self control.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

James 1:5

I have used this verse as a prayer probably more times than I can count, I need so much wisdom from the Lord.

 There are days when it is so hard to have an attitude that brings Glory to the Lord but in training my children to Live for His Gory I need to be oh so careful that I am being an example.

My desire is that my attitude bring Glory to Him.

We were made to Glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

Do you struggle with having a good attitude at times? 
What do you do to change that?

Thanks for sharing this with us, I think we can all lack self-control if we are not careful, but one of the fruits of the spirit is self control!

God is gracious and merciful, even when we are not. We need to surrender our all to Him who will give us peace, Phil 4:6-7

This post could have been written about me!
Yes I struggle with having a bad attitude at times. I get in the bad habit of looking at the negative things and not the good. I have to stop and pray that the Lord will help me change the way I see things. That I will stop focusing on the negative and look at the positive. Plus I really need to do that more for my daughter. I want to be a good example for her.
