Self-Control

August 22, 2017

Good Day Everyone!

 

Today as I drove home I get cut off by a young lady on the phone. Not once, not twice, but three times this young lady cuts me off or the driver in front of me off. Of course I am growing frustrated and mumbling to myself of my displeasure with this young lady and her driving habits. She was leaving campus and playing with her phone. Lost? Possibly. But, putting others safety in her careless hands was aggravating me. 

I caught myself; I found myself conflicted. I was not right in the way I was handling this situation. I was handling it like I always had. The wrong way. I needed to let it go. It was important to have self-control and be the man God wants me to be. I quickly let it go and moved on. 

It is important to understand the actions God wants us to take and show self-control even in the most difficult of times. Folks, I'm not perfect. I do get upset and I feel remorseful afterwards. As a recovered alcoholic I take it one day at a time. In my walk to grow as a Christian I find myself doing something very similar. I know the challenges of the world are attacking me daily. I work hard to pick and choose my battles and work on myself to be better. 

 

2 Peter 1:6

and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness,

 

Please continue to pray for the Goolsby Family and their boy that will require another surgery. Pray for our Church Family and their extended family and friends in the affairs or health concerns they may have and need the Lord's hand to help deal and cope with it. Continue to pray for our Church Leaders. Pray for our Nation's Leaders, especially the ones that need Jesus in their lives. Pray for whatever it maybe that is weighing heavy on your heart. Lastly, let's Praise God for His many blessings and glories. He is an Awesome God and we should thank Him for it as often as we can!
