Ego prick...ouch!

So as you can probably guess by the title, our training has not continued in a positive manner completely. I take fully responsibility for this. I am just having a hard time marking only what I really want. Well, I guess it is more a case of clicking before I have fully comprehended what she just did, and therefore mark it if it is correct, or not mark it if it is not. I have a tendency to guess whether it is going to be a good one or not. Yesterday morning I clicked twice when I should not have, and in the evening, I clicked the wrong thing FIVE TIMES!!!! Ridiculous. Not only did I keep clicking her jumping, but it caused her to offer jumping more and more often, so that I ended up with 8 jumps and 5 runs in the contact... =(  So I just ended the spiral downward, and played with her without agility equipment. This morning as I was reflecting on how sad a trainer I am (lol, poor me) I remembered that a few months back, I had felt led to pray before each dog training session. You know, "Let us have fun, not get stressed, and use what we learn to Your glory" type thing. But I never did. I just forgot all about it. So, now that I know that I need help, I decided to try it. I prayed for clarity of mind, that we would have fun, and that whatever happened in the practice, that it would be used for His Glory. Well, guess what....I did not click a incorrect behavior ONE SINGLE TIME!!!!! I cant believe it. But not only that, we actually enjoyed practice, and I was not tense and worried about clicking the wrong thing the whole time. It is true "My grace is sufficient for the, for my grace is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9)". Thank you Lord!
