I’ve resorted to a spray “Bitter Apple.” It’s made to discourage bad behavior. No, I don’t spray it on my beloved Sophie, but in the area’s that she frequents.

God has given us an instruction manual to help with that very thing, “The Bible.” We will never be perfect except in Christ Jesus, but if we will give our lives over to Him, “He promises that He will never leave us nor forsake us.” (Deuteronomy 31:8, NIV)
Each day we grow stronger in His hands, and before you know it those areas in our lives that might have been in question will no longer be of any importance to us. We will wonder why we ever went there in the first place. God gives us a new heart for Him and His will for our lives if we seek Him and all His righteousness. (Matthew 6:33)~ Debra
