My circumstances should not dictate my mood. No matter how exhausted or frustrated I am I need to work on reacting in a positive way, or at least not in a way that totally shows I am extremely irritated and negative.
So my hope for today, and what I am talking with God about, is for me to have patience and take a step back so I can take a deep breath. This will allow me to work on my reaction and talk to God about what He wants me to learn from the situation. Instead of completely imploding and becoming totally negative and angry.
Easier said than done but I like a challenge. The need to ask for patience is helping me as I diligently work on my relationship with the Lord. He needs to be the center of my life. Trying to control everything is leaving me frustrated and exhausted and irritated all the time.
That’s not okay. It’s not okay for me or my relationship with God or those around me.
Lord, thank You for Your neverending grace.
