I struggle! Here on Veteran's Day I was going to relax and watch a little football. What do I do?! I loose my temper. My chest hurts, I see red and I look at myself in the reflection of this window the car provides me here in my garage and i see a fool looking back at me. I allow so much out of my control to eat at me. I let the tiny things I do have control of, beat me. I have all I could need. Been blessed with so me wonderful reasons to smile and be happy, but I allow the Devil to get to me. All I can do is pray about it and continue to work with God on this struggle.
Had to get this off my chest.
26 “In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,
27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.
