I thought it was a good lesson that day and I find that it still serves a purpose to date. As I’m in a new transition in my life, I have many points in my days were things fall apart or take a turn for the worse. Instead of releasing myself to the bad-day gods, (or cussing people out) I’ve found that by bringing a little Jesus into my life through praise and worship, tuning into Virtual Bible Study, or reading the bible, that I can re-center or restart my day. I think it’s because it’s hard to focus on God and still be angry, agitated or disgusted.
So the next time your co-worker, roommate, child, spouse, or parent gets on your nerves, cue your Kirk Franklin Pandora station, pull up a daily devotional, go to your bible app or tune into Virtual Bible Study and change the course of your day. Renew your mind daily.
Phil: 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
