Good Morning Everyone! I certainly hope that all of you have a wonderful day!
A struggles I find myself dealing with most of the time and turn to God for guidance is why do others do such rude and hateful things. I grow angry at the person that cuts me off in traffic; the individual that protests false principles; some hitting a harmless man or woman because they do not like them; people that mock Christianity and the list goes on. You see it constantly in the media, on tv, in the papers and so on. At times I feel as though there is no hope for humanity.
A great test is when you cross a ONE way street; if you look both ways, you may have lost hope for humanity because you cannot trust another too follow the directions.
With the Lord's hand and guidance we all can let it go and leave it in His hands to work it out. As an adult I struggle with this. I want to work things out myself; God has entirely too much to deal with and I am strong and a man; I can do it! These are foolish words. I am not strong enough to deal with these things myself, I am weak; I need His hand and strength. We all need God! We needs His help. When I attempt to handle affairs that have already angered me or left me bitter it never works out. I Pray! Take a moment, breath and say a prayer. Show your humility and leave it to Him to handle. He can handle anything! God is Good!
Hope this helps someone as it continues to help me. Love you; have a Blessed Day!
