Calming Down...

Well, I erased a post. I was all in a fit about something, shot off my mouth (like that's something new), calmed down enough to hear from the Holy Spirit, and BAM. Conviction. It's amazing how our rational changes when we are angry, or hurt, or scared. It's easier to lash out than love. Sometimes, when you are so close to a situation, it's hard to see the big picture. So glad God is still working on my heart!

Somehow, I still read the post, girl (I guess because it's on my bloglines). And, I will say that I think you have a very valid complaint, here. Very valid. And the prayer at the end really shows your heart.
Just thought I'd tell ya that. ;)

Excellent post. It is easier to lash out than love - but God never said our road would be an easy one. Also, you're so right about being so close to a situation, you cannot see the big picture. Good stuff, friend!

Uhh, if you have bloglines, you still got to see the old post. (hee-hee, I feel all sneaky).

oh, and I agree with most of it. esp. the part about my support of our president....and now I'm MAD at him. (he's in the doghouse right now)

You're right. It's much easier to lash out than love. Now I'm wondering about my latest post.

For sure. But now I'm feeling "not in the quick blog reading crowd." Darn. My curiosity is aroused. :)
